(NBC News) - There may not be football for the Big Ten this fall.

According to numerous reports, Big Ten presidents voted against playing college football this fall due to concerns about the coronavirus.

The vote was reportedly 12-2 with Iowa and Nebraska being the lone votes to play in 2020.

According to The Detroit Free Press, a formal announcement will be made on Tuesday.

It is not clear if the league will look to play football in the spring.

The other Power Five football conferences in the Pac-12, ACC, SEC, and Big 12 have yet to definitively announce their plans moving forward.

The Power Five conference commissioners met Sunday to discuss the growing concern over whether the coming college football season will be played.
