Big 10 Football is Coming Back

From Sportico:

Big Ten football is back after conference presidents and chancellors voted unanimously to resume  play the weekend of October 23.

And why? The conference says it is because of better access to faster testing. But pressure from fans, parents, lawsuits, and politicians also had to factor in. But of course, there’s really only one reason: money. Which only serves as a reminder that the majority of laborers in college sport remain uncompensated.

It will be interesting to see if the PAC 12 follows suit or holds firm to the cancelled season. With the brutality of the ongoing fires throughout the west, I can see how officials could tie the resumption of football to a narrative of giving local fans hope.
