According to a report from The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, it sure looks like it. The Conference officially postponed the season out of concern due to the COVID-19 pandemic with the hopes that a season could be played in the spring.

Per the publication, several sources have indicated a renewed level of confidence that there will be a Big Ten college football season.

“Those sources told the Journal Sentinel they expect the Big Ten’s Council of Presidents and Chancellors will vote to start the season, with the target date Oct. 17.

The Council of Presidents and Chancellors voted, 11-3, last month to shut down all Big Ten fall sports because of concerns over the coronavirus pandemic.

Ohio State, Nebraska and Iowa were the three schools that voted to play.

Nine votes will be needed to reverse the original decision, and Wisconsin is expected to vote yes this time.

Sources reiterated that reliable, rapid testing has played a critical role and helped turn the tide in the favor of trying to play this year.”

There have been several notable critics of the Big Ten’s original decision, ranging from Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh all the way up to President Donald Trump.
