VIDEO: Nebraska Chancellor Hot Mic Signals Return of Big Ten Football

NCAA Football: Northern Illinois at Nebraska

There has been plenty of conversations as to whether or not the Big Ten is set to bring back football.

Over the weekend it was reported that  the Big Ten could have a new vote by the university presidents and chancellors soon, with newly revised medical standards in place which would allow the conference to begin play as soon as October 17th.

It looks like that is becoming a reality, with the outcome already known.

In a hot-mic incident on Tuesday, Nebraska chancellor Ronnie Green was heard saying, “We’re getting to announce the Huskers and Big Ten football tonight… it’s a good move in the right direction.”


So if that vote goes through as expected and the Big Ten gets going by the proposed date of October 17th, that would allow Big Ten schools to play nine conference games and still host a conference championship game on December 19th, one day before the college football playoff selection committee holds its final vote.

Right now, the Big 12 has flexibility and will play its conference championship game on either December 12th or December 19th.
