The Big Ten has officially canceled its fall football season, and will attempt to play this season next spring.

TCR first reported on a report from The Detroit Free Press on Monday, stating the Big Ten canceled the season.

The announcement comes just days 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.

Last 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.
