The Big Ten is one of the conferences that has announced it will play a conference-only schedule this year, and apparently there is still a chance the start of the season could be significantly delayed.

Teams in the Big Ten have been informed that there may not be games this fall, Pat Forde of Sports Illustrated reports.

A decision is expected to be made in the coming days, and Forde noted that the belief is that training camp will still start on time with adequate coronavirus testing protocols currently in place.

There has been a lot of talk about starting the college football in the spring, and some conferences could opt to go that route. With all of the major conferences heading toward playing conference-only schedules, it’s possible for them to begin their seasons at different times. Schedules would also be shorter if schools drop non-conference games, which would allow teams to begin their seasons later.

Patriots’ Patrick Chung explains why he opted out of season .
Chung’s reasons are similar to those a lot of his peers have given. His teammate, Patriots starting linebacker Dont’a Hightower, just had a baby in July. The Patriots have had multiple starters opt out due to the coronavirus, and they are obviously beginning a new era without Tom Brady. They’re going to face more challenges than most teams this season, though Cam Newton seems to be ready to tackle them.Chung was drafted by the Patriots with the 34th overall pick in 2009.
