FAST FIVE: UConn Becomes First Major College In The US To Cancel 2020 Football Season
According to media reports, requirements that visitors from other states quarantine for at least 2 weeks had already caused nearly half a dozen games to be cancelled for the regular season.
The football team members arrived on campus in early July, working out in small groups with plans to begin full practices Wednesday.
Games against Indiana, Illinois, Ole Miss and Maine were already canceled, while games against North Carolina and Virginia appeared unlikely.
Six Big Ten teams – Ohio State, Maryland, Michigan State, Indiana, Rutgers, and Northwestern – have temporarily halted practices due to positive tests.
“They're the ones going on the field and playing.” After most of its programs moved back to the Big East conference, including UConn's Men's and Women's basketball teams, the UConn football team was headed for a year of independent matchups, though after last year's lackluster season, fans probably won't be missing much.
