The Detroit Free Press is reporting the Big Ten is expected to cancel all 2020 fall sports, including the entire college football season over concerns during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Radio host Dan Patrick was the first to report that school presidents voted 12-2 to cancel fall sports, but other sources are saying an agreement has been reached, but that an official vote will not take place until Monday night at 6pm.

It’s possible that Patrick’s report should have stated there was “an agreement” instead of a vote, but other sources are confirming the details he reported on his syndicated radio show will eventually prove to be correct.

If the early reporting does pan out, Penn State, Michigan, Michigan State, and Ohio State, will be among the majority of schools voting to cancel the season, while the two votes in favor of playing, will come from Iowa and Nebraska.  

For fans holding out hope, The Chicago Tribune is reporting that “no final decisions have been made.”

Penn State Head Coach James Franklin appeared to tweet his support for playing the 2020 football season.
