Good morning, 

The Big Ten’s Return to Competition Task Force is starting to have conversation around whether the football season will start in the remainder of the fall. The conversations may start happening to return play in the fall instead of the spring as soon as Sunday. The Competition Task Force’s main priority is how to return players back to the field while keeping them safe and COVID-19 free. 

Ohio State coach Ryan Day believes the path the Big Ten medical subcommittee has made will allow players to return in mid-October.
