Big East joins Big 10 and Pac-12 in Postponing All Fall Sports


What Happened:

  • The Big East has decided to cancel all fall semester sports, including college football, due to the Covid-19 pandemic. This comes a few days after the Big 10 and Pac-12 made the same announcement.


What was Said:

  • Says Big 10 Commissioner Kevin Warren, “The mental and physical health and welfare of our student-athletes has been at the center of every decision we have made regarding the ability to proceed forward...there was too much uncertainty regarding potential medical risks to allow our student-athletes to compete this fall.”

  • “The health, safety and well-being of our student-athletes and all those connected to Pac-12 sports has been our number one priority since the start of this current crisis,” said Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott.
