The Supreme Court ruled against the NCAA on Monday in a case that challenged its ability to limit education-related benefits for athletes. The decision will end the association’s limits across the country on education-related benefits athletes can receive for playing college sports.

In response to the decision, the Big Ten Conference released a statement stating it will review the ruling and its future affects on name, image and likeness in a Tweet below. 

"The Big Ten Conference and our member institutions are carefully reviewing the implications of yesterday's Supreme Court decision in the Alston case, including how they may relate to NIL, to determine the best path forward for our student-athletes and for Conference athletics generally. 

We remain committed to providing opportunities to our student-athletes and supporting them in all aspects of their academic and athletic endeavors. The Big Ten Conference strongly supports NCAA NIL rules that protect student-athletes without putting them in the untenable position of risking their NCAA eligibility by exercising the rights soon to be afforded to them under state law."
