247Sports: Big Ten football is back on the menu. An announcement Wednesday confirmed plans for the conference to return to football fields starting Oct. 23-24 with daily, rapid testing for those involved.
The next step? The new Big Ten football schedule is here. The Big Ten moved quickly after its initial vote to return to play, and unveiled the new plans for the 2020 season live Saturday morning on Big Noon Kickoff.
The Big Ten revealed a revised schedule this summer following its pivot to a conference-only season. Days later, however, league decision makers voted to postpone the season indefinitely. Following a revote in September and the successful return to the gridiron for leagues like the ACC and Big 12, combined with availability of rapid testing and new medical information, Big Ten football is back.
