The Big Ten has canceled its 2020 football season and will try to play the fall season this spring, according to The Detroit Free Press’ Chris Sollari.

The announcement came shortly after the Mid-America Conference (MAC) canceled its fall season, moving it to spring 2021.

Saturday morning, the Big Ten announced that football teams cannot progress to full padded practices until further notice.

Earlier this week, the conference released its revised 10-game conference schedule, which was set to kick off with Illinois hosting No. 2 Ohio State at Memorial Stadium on Thursday, Sept. 3.

This is a breaking story that will be updated.
