The Big Ten has voted to cancel the 2020 football season due to concerns about COVID-19, according to the Detroit Free Press. 

Dan Patrick said on his radio show that the presidents of the 14 Big Ten universities took a vote and it was 12-2 to cancel, with only Iowa and Nebraska voting against canceling the season. 

There has been no public announcement on whether or not the Big Ten will play Spring 2021, or the cancelation includes the entire school year. 

A group of Pac-12 football players say they will not practice or play until their concerns about playing during the COVID-19 pandemic and other racial and economic issues in college sports are addressed.

The players posted a statement Sunday on The Players' Tribune website and social media with the hashtag #WeAreUnited and sent out a press release. The release listed the names of 12 Pac-12 players from nine schools, including Oregon star safety Jevon Holland, and provided a statement from each one.

The Dallas Cowboys will not be offering season tickets this year, the team announced in a statement Thursday.
