Has your college football team’s schedule been affected by COVID-19?
SportsPulse: Mackenzie Salmon connected with Yale’s Dr. Sten Vermund, who specializes in the field of infectious diseases, to get his thoughts on the conferences that are still attempting to play college football in the fall. He did not hold back.
The college football season has already seen its share of fits and starts with games postponed or canceled due to COVID-19 issues. Such disruptions were not entirely unexpected, which is why most leagues that elected to play built in some flexibility with a reduced number of games and pushed back their championship games.
Nevertheless, some of these non-conference contests might not be made up.
Here’s a list of all the match-ups that have been affected since the start of the season. This list does not include previously scheduled games dropped when conferences decided not to play or revamped their scheduling models over the summer.
