COLLEGE PARK, Md. (WJZ) — The mayor of College Park is among 11 other mayors to send a letter to the Big Ten conference hoping to get some clarity on the football season that’s set to kick off this week.

They’re asking at what point is the community positivity rate high enough that it’s no longer safe to host a football game.
