CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) - The Big Ten conference is expected to announce Wednesday morning that football will return next month.

ABC confirmed the decision was made after several days of debate among the university’s presidents and chancellors.

The season will begin the weekend of October 24, with an eight-game schedule for each team.

On August 11, the Big Ten announced it was moving the football season from fall to spring because of COVID-19 concerns. But now it will bring football back this fall.
