The Big Ten Conference may be together again on Sunday, according to national reports.

According to a report by Yahoo’s Pete Thamel, the Big Ten Council of Presidents and Chancellors could potentially unite to vote again in the coming days.

It will be around a medical presentation put together by the league’s competition taskforce and top medical advisors. If they present enough presidents and chancellors to change their early August voting, a re-vote may be held by Sunday.

The Big Ten has said the initial vote in August was 11–3 not to play. Six presidents and chancellors will have to change their initial vote to meet the league’s 60 percent voting threshold.

Now it can be thought that the season will start from October 17, which will give the teams five weeks to prepare.

This would certainly allow eight games to be played with the championship game for nine weeks.

There are still a lot of unknowns, but successes with rapid testing have played a big factor in moving things forward.

Nebraska recently announced that they have a fast test deal, while both the Big 12 and Pac-12 Conference have one. It is believed that the Big Ten will have to be in one place to resume the competition.
