Boo the Big Ten for Blocking Nebraska vs. UT-Chattanooga

Videos by OutKick

Wisconsin vs. Nebraska got canceled this Saturday after Graham Mertz, Paul Chryst and a dozen other Badgers players and personnel tested positive for COVID-19. There was a glimmer of hope that Nebraska might schedule a shotgun game versus UT-Chattanooga instead, but those plans have fallen by the wayside as the Big Ten said no:

It stinks that the Big Ten isn’t more flexible. That’s the whole reason we’re in this mess in the first place. They canceled the season too soon instead of following the lead of the SEC, ACC, and Big 12, who postponed the start of their seasons but still left room for more inevitable postponements.

Why couldn’t Nebraska and UT-Chattanooga play this game, so that players, coaches, and fans of these programs have something to do this Saturday?
