B1G commissioner Kevin Warren weighs in on status of national championship game
Big Ten Commissioner Kevin Warren has issued some comments amid speculation that the National Championship could be moved.
It was reported earlier on Tuesday that there have been COVID-19 issues within the Buckeyes program but they still intend to play the game as scheduled. For now, the game is scheduled for Monday, Jan. 11.
After that came out, Warren talked about the state of the title game. According to Buckeyextra, Warren says he is still planning on traveling for the game to be next Monday:
“We had them before the Big Ten football championship game, and then the Sugar Bowl semifinal game, and then this week,” he said. “You just have to communicate always. We’re playing football in a COVID environment.”
After Warren said that, he added:
“It’s COVID. We have to remain day-to-day. But I’m getting ready to travel down to Florida, and the game is scheduled for January 11 and I’m looking forward to a great game on Monday.”
If the game has to be postponed, the make-up date for it would be Jan. 18. But for now, it sounds like the plan is still to get everything played on Jan. 11.
