It might be time to upgrade that home entertainment system.
While the Big Ten has decided to move forward with the 2020 football season this fall, the league has decided to proceed without fans in the stands.
“As a conference we have made a decision, no public sale of tickets,” Penn State director of athletics Sandy Barbour said during a press conference on Wednesday.

The decision to not permit fans was part of the plan that was approved by the 14 Big Ten presidents and chancellors, Barbour added. Accordingly, that decision is highly unlikely to be revisited.
Though fans will not be permitted, Barbour said the conference will work to accommodate players’ families.
The full Big Ten schedule has not yet been released but is expected later this week.
Teams will play an “8+1” schedule, featuring eight regular-games followed by a ninth cross-divisional game for every team to be played the same weekend as the Big Ten Championship game.
