Big Ten Plans to Decide on Preseason Camp “Within the Next 5 Days,” Remains Hopeful But Uncertain About Starting Fall Sports in September

Ohio State and other football teams around the Big Ten are scheduled to begin preseason camp one week from today, but whether that will actually happen is still up in the air.

According to a letter sent Thursday to Big Ten athletic directors by commissioner Kevin Warren and Chris Kratochvil, the chair of the conference's task force for emerging infectious diseases, a decision on whether preseason camp will begin as currently scheduled will be made “within the next 5 days.“

“We will not, and cannot, proceed with preseason camp until we are certain that we can do so safely and that will depend, in part, on testing,” the letter states.
