Big Ten announces plan to resume football the weekend of Oct. 23-24
September 17, 2020
For about 40 days and 40 nights, the Big Ten Conference fasted from football.
Now, it plans to feast.
In a major about-face, the conference reversed its decision to cancel fall sports in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, reinstating the football season Wednesday for its 14 programs — including the Gophers’ — with other sports potentially to follow.
