Reports say leaders in the Big Ten conference have officially voted to axe the fall college football season. 

The conference confirmed the decision Tuesday afternoon, saying its presidents made the decision with the hope to play the season in the spring.

The news comes a day after reports surfaced saying the conference intended to cancel its season out of fear of the coronavirus. 

No other conferences have announced plans to cancel the fall slate as of Tuesday. The SEC is currently set to kick off the season Sept. 26 with 10 games against only conference opponents.'
