After a meeting on Tuesday morning, Big Ten presidents and chancellors voted to postpone fall sports. Men's and women's soccer and cross country, field hockey, volleyball and football will all be affected by the decision.
The unprecedented move comes in times dominated by confusion. The decision was made a day after the Big Ten refuted multiple reports that the college presidents of the conference voted to cancel fall athletics over the weekend. The delay gives both America and colleges time to contain the spread of the virus and adjust to the return of students, one of the biggest hurdles that still faces colleges trying to return safely and educate its students.
