2-Minute Morning

How many games will PSU play, and how the Big Ten botched this whole season

We’re starting to see a rise in COVID cases around the country, which is bad news in a lot of ways, and certainly for college sports.

The Big Ten is set to begin play Oct. 24 and will play for nine consecutive weeks. But how many games will Penn State actually play, and how many ultimately will get canceled because of COVID?

The sad reality is that there probably will be a large number of games eventually canceled, and the Big Ten boxed itself into a corner by starting the season so late and not allowing any time for the possibility of postponements.

Check out Cory Giger’s thoughts in this video.
