Will the Big Ten Football Season Have COVID-19 Cancellations?
The Big Ten athletics directors aren't naive to the possibility of cancellations being a likely scenario for this 2020 football season.
"As we go into it, we know (in the Big Ten), you’re going to see more cancellations than postponements because we don’t have a lot of wiggle room on the schedule." - Illinois athletics director Josh Whitman
Since the start of the 2020 season, 18 games involving Football Bowl Subdivision teams have either been postponed or cancelled due to concerns over coronavirus positive tests, including this weekend’s newest Atlantic Coast Conference game postponement of Notre Dame at Wake Forest.
