Big Ten football set to return October 23rd


A little late to the party, but the Big Ten is returning to college football this season, starting the weekend of October 23rd and 24th according to an announcement made by the league today.

Players, coaches, and staff who will be on the field for games and practices will receive daily antigen testing for COVID-19.

Anyone who does test positive will be ineligible to participate for 21 days and will need to undergo advanced cardiac evaluation before being cleared to return.

Big Ten officials originally postponed fall sports on August 11th and a new schedule for fall games has yet to be released.
