per Megan:

But that could all change. The Chicago Tribune reported a potential 10-game conference season, up from the current nine, starting Sept. 5. The conference could either add a fourth interdivision game or redo every team’s schedule according to geography.

That would allow for three to five open dates that grant flexibility for rescheduling, should a team need to quarantine for 10-14 days. The conference is also front-loading the schedules with divisional games since those typically need shorter travel and would have less risk of exposure to coronavirus, per the report.

But the Big Ten’s letter added a fairly ominous proclamation that “even issuing a schedule,” whenever it does, will not “guarantee that competition will occur.”

“If we determine as a conference that it is not prudent to compete in the fall of 2020,” the letter read, “we will not do so.”


Go Gophers!!
