The Big Ten presidents have overwhelmingly voted against playing football this fall amid the coronavirus pandemic, according to the Detroit Free Press.

Three sources who spoke on the condition of anonymity with the publication said an announcement will likely come Tuesday.

The presidents voted 12-2 to end the fall sports in the conference.

The presidents also didn’t rule out a football season in the spring.

CBS 17 will update this story as it develops.
