Dan Patrick Reveals the Two Big Ten Schools Who Voted to Play

Dan Patrick doesn’t always report, but when he does he breaks some good intel. Today on his Fox Sports Radio show he dropped two scoops that were pretty interesting:

1) The Big Ten and Pac-12 plan to cancel their seasons tomorrow. The Big 12 and ACC are on the fence. The SEC might try to add schools from conferences who cancel:

2) During an interview with Pat Forde of Sports Illustrated, Dan Patrick revealed the lone two Big Ten schools who dissented in the 12-2 vote to cancel Fall sports — Iowa and Nebraska:

Well, we have a head start on guessing which schools the SEC would try to nab for this season if they do play football and procure extra television deals.

This college football season is in complete chaos, but all of the derivatives about where it could go from here are absolutely fascinating to imagine and talk about.

UPDATE: The Detroit Free Press has confirmed Dan Patrick’s reporting, that the Big Ten voted 12-2 to cancel the college football season and plans a formal announcement on Tuesday.

Disclosure: Outkick founder Clay Travis is an on-air talent at Fox Sports Radio.

  1. I hope the decision makers face pressure from boosters and items that are voted on. That said, the people who made these decisions will probably never be known, which is a shame given their salary and power. I wish there was some level of transparency.

  2. Well I hope that the sec has a pair and plays if they get those schools from the big 10 and the acc and big12 play it will be a way race to the top of college football just like most years anyway
