COLUMBUS, Ohio (WOIO) - Ohio State Buckeyes quarterback Justin Fields has started a petition for the Big Ten to reinstate the 2020 football season.

This petition comes after the Big Ten decided to postpone the fall football season due to coronavirus, and possibly try to play in Spring 2021.

“We want to play. We believe that safety protocols have been established and can be maintained to mitigate concerns of exposure to Covid 19. We believe that we should have the right to make decisions about what is best for our health and our future. Don’t let our hard work and sacrifice be in vain. #LetUsPlay!”
Fields said in the petition on why this is important
