(24/7 News Source) -- The Big 10 is reversing itself, saying it will try to stage a college football season this fall. The league has announced it plans to have games as soon as October 23rd.
That's a change from last month when they said there would be no fall sports this year because of the Coronavirus pandemic.
The Big 10 said in a statement released Wednesday morning that everyone involved in the programs would be tested daily for the virus. Any team with a five-percent positivity rating in testing would immediately stop practicing.
Colleges have been under financial pressure to restart their seasons because of the revenue football generates.
The Big 10 will play 9 games this season, with teams playing 8 games leading into Championship Week on December 18th-19th.
The Title Game is December 19th, with teams that finish 2nd-7th in each division playing a 9th game against each other. 2nd East vs 2nd West, 3rd East vs 3rd West, ect
