Reports: Plan on return to Fall sports met with ‘optimism’ from Big Ten leaders
MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) -A presentation by the return to competition task force Saturday led to a meeting of all 14 university presidents and chancellors Sunday.
The Big Ten’s Return to Competition Task Force “presented a safe resumption of sports competition” to university presidents and chancellors that reportedly ended successfully Saturday, and will lead to a vote on a return to play within the coming days, per Pete Thamel of Yahoo Sports.
Nine of the 14 universities must vote “yes” to play this fall in order to move forward. Wisconsin was one of the 11 original votes to postpone back in august.
All 14 Big Ten Chancellors and Presidents met Sunday and, though no voting took place, the presented plan was met with “optimism."
If the plan is approved, the season could start as soon as Oct. 17.
