On Sept. 16, The Big Ten conference ( which includes schools such as Northwestern University, the Ohio State University and the University of Michigan ) announced it will kick off its football season the weekend of Oct. 24, ESPN.com reported.
The announcement was made after the league's presidents and chancellors unanimously voted to resume competition, citing daily testing capabilities and a stronger confidence in the latest medical information.
Each team will attempt to play eight games in eight weeks, leaving no wiggle room during the coronavirus pandemic before the Big Ten championship game scheduled for Dec. 19. The Big Ten would complete its season before the Dec. 20 Selection Day for the College Football Playoff.
Fans are not expected at Big Ten games, which will be held on campus throughout the season.
