The 2020 college football season continues to push on, but there has been a fair number of hiccups along the way.

The ACC, Big 12 and SEC began play earlier this season. Those conferences have all had some games postponed due to COVID-19 outbreaks, but because they started the season early enough, they should be able to get someone of a full year in.

The Big Ten, meanwhile, just began play last week. The conference waited until late October to start its regular season. Already, there's been some problems. The Nebraska vs. Wisconsin game scheduled to take place today has been canceled.

There are extremely strict policies in place within the Big Ten, as athletes who test positive are forced to miss 21 days of action. This policy is much different in comparison to the ones in place in other conferences.

The following graphic from ESPN sums up where everyone is at this season. Big Ten fans aren't thrilled with the major differences between conferences:

Safety has to come first, obviously, but this is where college football struggles due to a lack of one governing body.

The collective season would probably be in much better shape if there was one commissioner or entity making all of the decisions.
