Big Ten directive shuts down Michigan State spring practice, pro day

While Michigan State had yet to officially call off spring football practice, the Big Ten on Friday assured that it would at least be severely limited.

In the continued effort to potentially limit the spread of the coronavirus, the conference announced that all team activities would be suspended until April 6, at which point things would be further evaluated.

“The Big Ten has previously announced that in addition to canceling the Men’s Basketball Tournament it will be canceling all conference and non-conference competitions through the end of the academic year, including spring sports that compete beyond the academic year, and participation in all NCAA tournaments and competitions,” the conference said in a statement.
