Big Ten, Pac-12 postpone their seasons

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

The Big 10 and Pac 12 college football conferences have postponed their fall seasons due to the Cova 19 pandemic, and that could be a further financial blow to the schools like Rutgers University.

We don't have our final budget numbers. L'm in terms of our appropriation for the states, So we I'm really not able to say not because I'm trying to hide anything but literally not ableto say will get cut, but it will be tough. Holloway says the conference is considering rescheduling for the spring. But even if they don't play, he says student athletes will still get their scholarships.
