So we were careful on Friday and Saturday, we divided the boys into groups and only took care of the air conditioning. Then the team got together and had their usual Monday morning practice.
We’re confident we can get it under control and we’re looking forward to playing in Michigan this week. As elsewhere, we will continue to monitor the test results and base our decision on them.

Wisconsin, starting the season on the 23rd. The team that started with a victory over Illinois on October 10 will probably have to play the last five regular season games to qualify for the Western Division and Big Ten titles. In order to take part in a game, a team must play at least six games.

If the cancelled game is against two teams with the same percentage of victory, the results of the two teams in case of a tie will be compared based on the percentage of victory in their division.
