Two days after the Big Ten Conference announced the postponement of football for the Fall 2020 semester, one university is looking at making plans for the spring.

Purdue Football released on Twitter Thursday a seven-page proposal for a eight-game regular season in the spring of 2021.  The proposal would have the season start on Saturday, February 27th and run until Saturday, April 17th. 

The plan also includes the possibility for a 6-team playoff to start on the first weekend of May which would include all five "Power 5 Conference Champs" and a wildcard team or a Big Ten Championship then the Rose Bowl or 4-team playoff.

The Rose Bowl typically consist of the Big Ten and Pac-12 Conference, which also postponed football for the fall.

The Spring Season would then push back the start of the Fall 2021 Season to the first Saturday in October.

The plan also lays out how to conduct practices in late January and February to get the teams ready for the schedule. 

There is no official word from the Big Ten Conference on any plans for football in the spring of 2021.
