Wisconsin and its rivals in the Big Ten Conference and other leagues may not all start the college football season at the same time according to NCAA President Mark Emmert.
The Associated Press reported Emmert admitting Monday that although he would like all teams to have a uniform amount of time to prepare for the season, it may not be possible due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Football Bowl Subdivision teams like Wisconsin to play at least nine games total including five at home. That means the Badgers could afford to miss a few games and still play a full season. While the timeline to start the season is a moving target, Emmert did make it clear that if college campuses are not open for students that their respective sports teams will not start their seasons.
