Just one week into the Big Ten college football season, the conference is now feeling the effects of the coronavirus pandemic.
On Wednesday, Wisconsin announced that it would be pausing all football-related activities for seven days due to an "elevated number of COVID-19 cases within the Badgers' program," the program said in a statement.
Wisconsin's game against the Nebraska Cornhuskers on Saturday, October 31, will not be played.

Zero Risk society equals zero freedom zero liberty society. Sad.
After Sparty’s performance against Rutgers last week, I wouldn’t mind cancelling this Saturday’s matchup between MSU and U-M.
The real problem is that their starting QB was hurt and the next 2 tested positive. So this is all about not getting creamed while playing the 4th. string quarterback.
Big Ten commissioner and AD’s sabotaged any chance of qualifying for the CFP. Eight games with no bye weeks. 21day quarantine with no scientific basis. This was their intent. They do not care.
“Wisconsin pauses football, cancels Nebraska game due to coronavirus spike”
that kind of cowardly nonsense suits me just fine: it helps put the ACC and SEC in an even better situation ... but even better, infuriated Badger fans will be even more likely to vote GOP and Trump ...
they should have made sure the whole team got infected a couple months ago...be over it and playing....
Air Force/Army game this weekend. West Point hasn’t had a case of covid since June. Think they put them in a bubble.
The playoffs are going to be Alabama, Clemson, Ohio State and either the top Big12 school - at this point, probably OK State, or a second ACC team (Notre Dame).
What an easy way to get a draw out of a game you know your going to loose big time.
Why do we care about Big 10. Big 10 is for Black Lives Matter.
Covid-19 is my friend, it is costing the college and professional sports millions of dollars. Lockdown all college and professional games, Lock it down now.
Notre Dame is very impressive this year
Now if I'm Mertz and my school chooses to cancel the game, not the B1G, then maybe I consider going somewhere else. Because it is my understanding that WI chose to cancel the game, it wasn't mandated by the B1G.
Like all other sports, this year’s CF season will have a huge asterisk, to whomever is the mythical National Champion.
Just have Alabama play Clemson this weekend and get it over with.
Is this counted as a forfeit? If not, it should.
Where’d they get the 21 days from?
