According to reports the Big Ten and Pac-12 voted to cancel fall sports Tuesday amid concerns around the coronavirus. It's the first power five football conference to call of its season.

Reports around the Big Ten's cancellation began swirling Saturday after the power five schools met to discuss the season. The conference let it be know that it wanted to punt on the year, but wanted the support of other conferences. Whether or not they have that support remains unclear.

The Pac-12 also reportedly voting Tuesday, to postpone fall sports. The vote was unanimous.

A report around the ACC Tuesday said that the conference was more set to play than it was a few days ago. The conference pushed its start into early September and believes the conference has more time to decide.
