  • Wisconsin head coach Paul Chryst talks to players during the first half of an NCAA college football game against Illinois Friday Oct. 23 2020 in Madison Wis

Wisconsin's game against the Nebraska Cornhuskers on Saturday, October 31, will not be played.

Wisconsin - which thumped IL in the conference's first game of the season - has paused team activities for at least seven days due to a COVID-19 outbreak.

"We have said from the beginning that the health and safety of our student-athletes, coaches and staff members comes first", Athletic Director Barry Alvarez said.

Coronavirus: 5 deaths today, and 47 COVID cases in Galway
There have been 47 additional cases of COVID-19 reported in Galway today, out of 720 confirmed cases reported in the country. As a public service, Shaw Media will provide open access to information related to the COVID-19 ( Coronavirus ) emergency.

Wisconsin said 12 athletes and staff members, including head coach Paul Chryst, have tested positive in the last five days. "I informed my staff and the team this morning and am now isolating at home". Additional test results are pending. This is the 37th game involving Football Bowl Subdivision teams to be postponed or canceled since August 6.

The Big Ten's return-to-play policies regarding COVID-19 are among the most-stringent in the country.

It's also worth noting that Big Ten players who test positive must sit out for at least 21 days (coaches, like Chryst, must miss only 10 days), and so if more confirmed cases are found, then it stands to reason that Wisconsin could run into a roster issue in the weeks ahead. "But the safety of everyone in our program has to be our top priority and I support the decision made to pause our team activities". One has to wonder, too, if the Badgers can be ready to play next week at home against Purdue if they can only begin practicing again the Wednesday before the Boilermakers come to Camp Randall. If the average number of conference games played by all Big Ten teams is below six, programs must play no less than two fewer league games than that average to be considered.
