Big Ten and Pac-12 cancel fall football

Big Ten cancels football

The Big Ten has voted to cancel fall football and all related activities. It is their hope that football can return in the spring. Before the cancellation was announced, the Big Ten shifted their schedule to feature conference-only game, in order to reduce travel as much as possible.

Stadium’s Brett McMurphy went on to tweet a statement from the Big Ten commissioner Kevin Warren on Tuesday afternoon.

Many sports have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. College football, however, is the first to preemptively cancel their season. NCAA basketball cancelled March Madness, but most of the season took place.

The Big Ten is the biggest conference to cancel fall sports activities, followed by the Pac-12 in the same day. The Ivy League, who set the precedent by cancelling their fall sports activities, came first however. More conferences are expected to join them

Dangers posed by the pandemic are not specific to the student athletes, but also their families, coaches and other employees within the universities. If some conferences choose to play fall sports, it is unlikely fans will be allowed in the stands.
