The parents of Ohio State football players released a letter on Sunday advocating for a season to take place.
The letter, which was signed by the Football Parents Association at Ohio State, says the parents have faith and trust in the school and coaches. They also say they believe their sons are at minimal risk for the coronavirus and that a season can occur safely and responsibly.

The letter was released at a time when the Big Ten is reportedly prepared to cancel fall sports, and there are talks that other leagues will do the same.
Beyond the idea of whether schools feel they can undergo a season safely, there are other concerns they have to take into consideration. That includes recent player demands, as well as possible legal liabilities from playing a season.
In addition to the Ohio State parents supporting a season, many college football players on Sunday night tweeted their desire to have a season.
