COLUMBUS, Ohio — Football Parents at Ohio State are organizing a rally at Ohio Stadium on Saturday to demand answers from the Big Ten after the football season was postponed.

The parents have called on the Big Ten to reinstate a fall season for a few weeks after the season was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This Saturday, a rally will be held at the rotunda of Ohio Stadium to demand "transparency and better communication from the Big Ten and Kevin Warren."

The PAC-12 is the only other "Power 5" conference to postpone its season due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
