Wisconsin Badgers Football Release Updated COVID-19 Numbers

The University of Wisconsin football program announced yesterday that it had 14 active COCID-19 cases, down from 27 on Tuesday. Of the active cases, nine are players and five are staff members.

The improving numbers gave the Badgers enough confidence to start doing some limited on-field conditioning work on Friday and Saturday, though they kept the groups small and all players and staff members were wearing masks.

Wisconsin is holding all of their meetings virtually, while also creating more locker room space in the McClain Center to accommodate more room for even more social distancing.

UW paused all football related activities in late October and then proceeded to cancel the games against Nebraska and Purdue on October 31 and November 7.

The 10th ranked Badgers are still scheduled to play Michigan on Saturday, November 14, at 6:30 PM (CT) (televised on ABC). Something the Badgers will need to do if they hope to meet the minimum number of games played (6) to be eligible for the Big Ten Title game.

A further update from the University is expected tomorrow.
