The big news in the college football world on Wednesday was the Big Ten announcing it would, in fact, have a fall football season.

The season will start on Saturday, Oct. 24, as things stand now. This comes after the conference originally announced it was postponing the season amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

On Wednesday, during his evening press conference, Alabama coach Nick Saban was asked about the B1G’s decision and said he’s happy for the players:

Saban has been very pro-player throughout the process of returning to football, so it’s no surprise what he said on Wednesday night.

Now, we’ll see if Saban and Alabama end up meeting a B1G team in a bowl game or in the College Football Playoff at some point this year.
