Don't expect a vote on fall football to come on Friday.

At some point, the Big Ten's Council of Presidents and Chancellors will have to meet to finalize the conference's return to sports, whenever that may be, but it seems that meeting will not happen on Friday.

Despite a report from Bucknuts on Wednesday evening that the Big Ten could vote as early as Friday on whether to have fall football, multiple reports emerged indicating that no vote or meeting would take place on Friday.

CBS Sports' Dennis Dodd reported on Thursday afternoon that there was "no immediate plan" for Big ten presidents to meet to consider fall start to season. Then on Friday, Nebraska President Ted Carter and Chancellor Ronnie Green said no meeting would take place that day.

Even if the Big Ten does not reconsider its postponement of the fall season, the conference will still have to meet one way or another to determine the process for returning to play, finalize a return date, and develop a schedule.

Wisconsin athletic Barry Alvarez said on Friday that the conference's committee working toward the return of sports will have to more meetings with the conference's Council of Chancellors and Presidents, but he can't give a specific target date for kickoff.
