Rutgers fall football season canceled following Big Ten vote

The Big Ten will not play football in the fall. The decision comes after the presidents of those colleges, including Rutgers University, met to formalize their plan. It could act as a catalyst for every Power 5 conference struggling with the same decision weighing the health risks caused by the pandemic.

Rutgers’ program already knows what’s at stake. Earlier this summer, multiple members of the team tested positive for the virus, sidelining practices and workouts for the entire team.
