President Donald Trump congratulated the Big Ten Conference which announced Wednesday it will give fall college football a shot after all. The Big Ten reversed a decision to delay the season to spring after pushback from lawmakers, coaches, and parents and President Trump. Speaking to reporters at a White House news conference, Trump thanked the players and coaches "for working along," saying "they wanted it very badly." Trump also called on the PAC-12 to also "open up" and start playing. The Pac-12 followed the Big Ten in postponing, but was far more detailed in its explanation and had more obvious hurdles to clear. Half the Pac-12 schools are still operating under statewide restrictions that make it impossible for teams to practice.
