The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and USA Today is reporting that the Big Ten Conference and its football coaches are considering starting the football season this coming Thanksgiving weekend.

The possibility of a more convenient and less expensive test for the coronavirus for teams is making a November start at least part of the thought process going forward.

This is in contrast to another plan that would see the football season being played at several indoor stadiums in the Big ten footprint.  Such as Ford Field in Detroit, Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, and US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.

Both plans will allow for at least eight regular season games to be played by each team.  It is unclear if it will be all conference games or not.

Fox Sports college football analyst Bruce Feldman is tweeting out on Friday that there's conference call about the possibility of November football in the Big Ten.

Here's Feldman's tweet:


Stay tuned folks, we may have Big Ten football this fall after all!
