With COVID-19 still raging across the country, it was long expected that many college football games would be postponed if not outright canceled over the course of the season. With many unknowns about the virus and its long-term effects, schools are taking every precaution necessary to make sure the student-athletes and staff are protected. As we enter Week 10 of the 2020 season, there have now been 39 games affected by COVID-19 with most postponements coming as a result of contact tracing protocols that require players to quarantine for 14 days if they are deemed to have been in high-risk contact with someone who has tested positive for the coronavirus.

The most recent and notable game affected is Wisconsin and Nebraska after the Badgers had 12 positive results, including quarterback Graham Mertz and coach Paul Chryst. The Badgers game in Week 10 against Purdue is all off as the program continues to battle the illness. 

Some teams, such as Florida, Missouri, Houston, Memphis, Baylor, FAU, Virginia Tech, Arkansas State, Charlotte and Rice have already experienced multiple game disruptions. Even those who have not seen a game postponed yet are living day-by-day as COVID-19 test results and subsequent contact tracing dictate if — and how effectively — they will be able to play as scheduled.
