LINCOLN, Nebraska (KTIV) -- If you're a college football fan, you want to make your plans in pencil, not pen. Now, it might be time to get out the eraser. Numerous reports say the Big Ten Presidents have voted against playing college football this fall, due to concerns about the corona-virus.

The vote was reportedly 12-2 against playing. The two schools who voted to play were Iowa and Nebraska. A formal announcement will reportedly be made Tuesday.

There are reports that the SEC or the Big 12 may invite Big Ten schools to play in their conferences this fall. The Huskers just want to play somewhere.

"We want to play a Big 10 schedule. I hope that's what happens," said Frost. "Our university is committed in playing, no matter what. No matter what that looks like or how that looks. We want to play no matter who it is or where it is so we'll see how those chips fall. We certainly hope it is in the Big 10, if it isn't, I think we are prepared to look for other options."

Nebraska is scheduled to open the season September 5 at Rutgers.
