The MRL Morning Show

Weekdays 6:00AM-10:00AM

I know a lot of my college football fans will be excited about this!  Big Ten football is coming back this fall.

Wednesday morning, the conference is expected to announce its plan to return to play next month’s sources say. Big Ten university presidents and chancellors came to the decision after several days of mulling over fall sports amid COVID-19 spikes at colleges around the country.

A condition that would allow individual schools to opt-out was among the items discussed during the return-to-play meetings, a source told the Associated Press.

The Big Ten postponed its fall season Aug. 11 because of concerns about playing through the coronavirus pandemic, with presidents and chancellors voting 11-3 in favor. Ohio State, Iowa, and Nebraska voted against postponement.
