After presidents meet, Big Ten football still in limbo
The Big Ten presidents were presented a comprehensive plan Sunday to conduct a fall football season, but a final decision is still to come. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the Big Ten was not making its return to competition plans public. The person said the meeting broke up without the presidents and chancellors voting and with no set plans for them to reconvene. Still, if they act quickly Big Ten football could kickoff as soon as the weekend of Oct. 17. That schedule could set up Big Ten teams to be part of the College Football Playoff.
MHSAA reinstates fall football, other high school sports in Michigan
The Michigan High School Athletic Association has reinstated fall football and other high school sports in the state of Michigan following Gov. MHSAA officials announced Thursday that the fall 2020 football season has been reinstated by its Representative Council. On Aug 14, the fall 2020 football season was postponed to spring 2021, but Thursdays vote allows for a shortened season this fall. However, the MHSAA will conduct its postseason events in those four sports only for the fall 2020 season, officials said. All football teams in 11- and eight-player football will qualify for the playoffs during the shortened season.
