The Big 12 will be implementing anti-racism and social justice ads during games this season, Dave Wilson, a writer for ESPN, reports.
There are currently two ads that will run during Big 12 Conference games, starting this weekend. Teams will also be wearing a social justice patch on their jerseys, and a black Big 12 unity sticker on the back of their helmets.
Wilson would continue that Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby also spoke of the possibility of allowing players on the field during the National Anthem.
Bowlsby stayed that systemic racism is a “problem,” and that he hopes the conference can “make progress” for the issue.
