Nebraska hopes football still possible after Big Ten cancels

The Big Ten postponed the fall football season Tuesday afternoon, but Nebraska isn’t giving up hope that it can find a way to play in 2020.

Following the conference’s announcement, Huskers head coach Scott Frost, athletic director Bill Moos, chancellor Ronnie Green and president Ted Carter didn’t hold back when they released a joint statement on the news.

“We are very disappointed by the Big Ten Conference to postpone the fall football season, as we have been and continue to be ready to play.

“Safety comes first. Based on the conversations with our medical experts, we continue to strongly believe the absolute safest place for our student athletes is within the rigorous safety protocols, testing procedures, and the structure and support provided by Husker Athletics.
