Big Ten football is back.
After originally postponing all fall sports season which included football back on August 11th due to the Coronavirus fallout, the conference has voted to reinstate the sports.
The conference received massive pressure in the form of petitions, protests and even words from President Trump, and after weighing those and the medical evidence dealing with the virus, has elected to join other conferences like the SEC and ACC in having football be played this season.
