The Masters released a target date for November. Here are the B1G games scheduled for that weekend
If you love the PGA Tour and B1G football (like me), then you may have a tough decision to make come November.
While the fall months are typically dedicated to football and the major tournaments in golf have all been played, that won’t be the case in 2020. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, certain sporting events have been postponed or canceled.
One of those prominent events was The Masters, which was previously scheduled for April 9-12, was postponed due to the public health crisis, with the announcement coming last month. Now, it has set a target date for the prestigious tournament, Nov. 12-15 (tournament rounds). Below is the statement from The Masters:
We remain very mindful of the extraordinary and unprecedented challenges presented by the Coronavirus around the world. As such, we continue to keep in close contact with local, state and national health authorities to help inform our decisions.
In collaboration with the leading organizations in golf, Augusta National Golf Club has identified November 9-15 as the intended dates to host the 2020 Masters. While more details will be shared in the weeks and months to come, we, like all of you, will continue to focus on all mandated precautions and guidelines to fight against the Coronavirus. Along the way, we hope the anticipation of staging the Masters Tournament in the fall brings a moment of joy to the Augusta community and all those who love the sport.
Obviously, that’s going to conflict with B1G football this fall. So, here’s a list of the games that are scheduled for that Saturday, Nov. 14. Times are not yet available:
- Wisconsin vs. Purdue
- Illinois vs. Indiana
- Nebraska vs. Iowa
- Ohio State vs. Maryland
- Michigan State vs. Penn State
- Michigan vs. Rutgers
- Morgan State vs. Northwestern
- OFF: Minnesota
Congratulations, Minnesota fans, you’ll be able to watch The Masters without missing your favorite team. And some fan bases may luck into a night game, allowing them the afternoon to check out some golf.
For the rest of us, we may have to bring in a second or third television to consume all the action that weekend.
