Big Ten Football is back October 24th
The Big Ten Conference announced today (Wednesday, Sept. 16) the return of the 2020 football season this fall. Games will begin starting the weekend of Oct. 23-24.
The eight-game schedule for all Big Ten schools will be set in the near future and announced by the conference shortly after.
Daily Rapid Testing is said to have pushed the Presidents over the top to go ahead with the season.
Big Ten Players that have opted out for the season, but not have hired an agent will be eligible to return.
Several prominent Big Ten players have opted out like Micah Parsons of Penn State, Rashod Bateman of Minnesota, Shaun Wade of Ohio State, and Rondale Moore of Purdue. All are expected to be 1st round picks in the 2021 NFL Draft.
