School leader: B1G football on hold until questions answered

By RALPH D. RUSSO AP College Football Writer

The University of Wisconsin chancellor says Big Ten football will remain on hold until there are answers to questions about COVID-19 testing and tracing, along with possible long-term heart issues related to the coronavirus.

Big Ten leaders are reconsidering a fall season after a weekend of meetings about a plan to begin play as soon as mid-October.

Wisconsin chancellor Rebecca Blank would not predict which way a vote to return to play would go.

She says once Big Ten university leaders have their questions and concerns addressed, "we will try to plan a delayed season."
