It has been reported this week by several media outlets that the Big Ten is possibly eyeing a new start date of Oct. 10th to begin their fall football campaign. In a statement from the conference, the Big Ten is working hard to try to make fall football a possibility.
According to Dan Patrick and the Detroit Free Press, the Big 10 has voted to cancel its 2020 football season. The conference voted 12-2 to cancel this season, the only dissenting universities who voted to play were Iowa and Nebraska.
On Thursday, it was announced that the formerly named “Belk Bowl” will be rebranding as the “Duke’s Mayonnaise Bowl.” The bowl game, which is played in Charlotte, North Carolina has historically featured conference tie-ins for both the ACC and the SEC but now will feature the Big Ten conference, which will swap out with the SEC every other year.
