Dan Patrick: Big Ten and PAC-12 to cancel their seasons tomorrow

Update: The Big Ten has voted to cancel the fall season, according to a report Monday from the Detroit Free Press. No formal announcement has come from the conference yet.

In foreboding news, Iowa also canceled a previously scheduled practice today.

More to come on this story as it develops.

The odd part about this is that Big Ten teams are practicing today.

Welp, now this contradicts what the Free Press reported, so that's something.

Would be really nice to hear from Big Ten leadership on this subject. Like, now. Big Ten spokesman:No vote has been taken at this time.6pm et update:Kirk Herbstreit says the B1G will not be canceling the season; but likely delaying the start.

According to The Dan Patrick Show this morning, decisions have been made by at least a few of the Power Five Leagues. Patrick shared on the airwaves this morning that the Big Ten and Pac 12 will cancel their football seasons tomorrow, noting that league officials had an internal vote over the weekend and voted 12-2 to NOT play - with Iowa and Nebraska being the only two votes to play. Meanwhile, the ACC and Big 12 are on the fence about their fall seasons. As for the SEC, Patrick says that they are trying to get teams to join them for a season, and adds that the SEC is looking at exclusive TV contract deals. Patrick's sources said that the SEC is trying to bide some time to see if they can get the ACC or Big 12 to go along with them. See the full video below.
