Report: Big Ten could be on verge of canceling game due to COVID-19

We all knew it was just a matter of time but according to a report, a Big Ten game is on the verge of being canceled due to COVID-19.

Jeff Potrykus of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is reporting that Saturday’s game between Wisconsin and Nebraska in jeopardy of being canceled because the Badgers’ positivity rate is close to the Big Ten’s threshold.

From MJS:

The Journal Sentinel has reported that quarterbacks Graham Mertz and Chase Wolf have tested positive for coronavirus.

But according to a second source, UW’s test positivity rate is close to the threshold that would force the team to stop regular practice and competition for a minimum of seven days and then reassess the situation.

If the game is not played, it would be considered a no-contest rather than a forfeit.

Because of the late start to the season for the Big Ten, there is no room to make up games. Therefore, any game that is not played will not count as a win or loss for either team.
