In the ever-changing landscape of college football in 2020, Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields is pushing for the opportunity to play in the Big Ten. The Big Ten became one of several conferences to announce in recent weeks the cancellation or postponement of fall sports, including football, with the hope to play in the spring. Fields joins another high-profile quarterback, Trevor Lawerence, in the petitioning. NCAA Chief Medical Officer Brian Hainline said on CNN this weekend “Right now, if testing in the US stays the way it is, there’s no way we can go forward with sports. We’re not in a place today where we can safely play sports.”
