Big Ten Canceling Football Season Tuesday, Freep Reports: Updated

11 Aug , 2020  

By 1808Delaware

Updated at 6:30 PM on Monday: Cleveland.com is reporting this evening that OSU President Kristina Johnson will not vote to cancel the season, contradicting information included in the report referenced below. To highlight the confusion, the report also has different information about when a vote is scheduled to take place.

The Detroit Free Press, commonly known as the “Freep,” shared on Monday that the Big Ten Conference is expected to cancel the 2020 football season in its entirety.

The announcement is expected on Tuesday.

The story shares that the vote of Big Ten Presidents was 12-2, with Iowa and Nebraska voting to continue the season. It also stated that a final vote would be taken on Monday evening.
