The Badgers canceled Saturday’s game against Nebraska due to the outbreak.
Wisconsin’s COVID-19 outbreak continues to grow amid a rough week for the football program.
Athletic director Barry Alvarez provided an update on ESPN’s College GameDay on Saturday morning and said the program has 22 positive COVID-19 tests. The results include 10 staff members and 12 players.
“So we are still having additions in our cases, and that’s something we have to get our arms around and control of,” Alvarez said, per Saturday Tradition.
He added that the Badgers are evaluating their upcoming game against Purdue on Nov. 7 and will make a decision on their Week 3 status on Tuesday.
If Wisconsin can’t play Purdue, it will drop the team to a six-game schedule, which is the minimum needed to contend for the Big Ten championship. The league is playing an eight-game, conference-only schedule this fall and has no bye weeks to make up
