The development is the latest in a long string of them that, over the last couple of weeks, has endlessly suggested that games would be played after all before the end of 2020, even if an original vote by the Big Ten's Council of Chancellors and Presidents was initially 11-3 in favor of postponing back on August 11, according to a court filing in a lawsuit that pits the conference against a handful of Nebraska players. Blank explained Tuesday that the main reasons the conference's leaders voted to postpone fall sports was because of the uncertainty around the frequency of "testing and contact tracing needed to keep athletes safe".

Blank declined to say whether the Big Ten would announce the return of football Tuesday or later this week.

Two days after Big Ten presidents and chancellors met to review information about a possible fall football season, University of Nebraska system president Ted Carter was caught on a hot microphone saying that an announcement will come later Tuesday.

Carter has since told reporters the comments were taken "out of context" and that he remains "cautiously optimistic" there will be a fall season. Secondly, there was this growing evidence about heart-related myocarditis and that evidence was uncertain and it wasn't clear what it meant and we wanted to know more. "There were a few other minor reasons".

"When there is any news to share or confirm regarding any Big Ten board decision, it will be announced by the Big Ten", University of Nebraska spokeswoman Deb Fiddelke said. "Once we have answers to that and to some of those issues and things that we have ways to deal with them effectively, we will try to plan a delayed season". "Decisions within the Big Ten are largely majority-based decisions but I'll be honest, we nearly always decide everything by consensus".

A court filing earlier this month disclosed that Big Ten presidents and chancellors voted 11-3 in favor of postponing all fall sports. While a vote is not certain to happen on Sunday, sources said that the league will vote in some fashion on the sport coming back within the next 48 hours. Iowa, Nebraska and Ohio State voted against the move. The Big Ten's Council of Presidents and Chancellors met on Sunday after hearing from a medical committee on Saturday.

There have been various reports about when a vote will take place, how it will turn out and if there could be some Big Ten schools that choose not to play this fall even if others do.

The wait for news about whether or not the Big Ten will play football, or any sports, this fall could end on Tuesday night.
