The Mid-American Conference on Saturday became the first league competing at college football's highest level to cancel its fall season because of COVID-19 concerns.
President Donald Trump joined a United States senator and a number of coaches Monday in the push to save the college football season from a pandemic-forced shutdown.
Even as universities begin inviting students back to campus, the Big Ten Conference is scheduled to officially vote Monday night to cancel the upcoming football season, according to the Detroit Free-Press. That came after weekend rumblings that the conference was leaning towards cancellation.
Frost says he believes the safest place for players is "right here where there's structure, there's testing, there's medical supervision, where they have motivation to make smart decisions to stay away from the virus".
If the rumor of the vote was a strategy to test public opinion, it certainly stirred up plenty of discussion.
President Trump also told Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany that "he very much would like to see college football safely resume their sport ... he'd like to see [these athletes] live out their dreams".

"We will continue to monitor the situation and when conditions change we will be ready to explore all options to play the impacted sports in the new calendar year".
Several of the Big Ten schools rescheduled their practices or media availabilities originally set for Monday.
Presidents and chancellors of the Pac-12 universities are scheduled to meet Tuesday.
