UPDATE: The Wisconsin vs. Rhode Island game is officially on.

Wisconsin vs. Louisville has reportedly been canceled.

According to Jon Rothstein, the game between the Badgers and Cardinals won’t happen as planned Wednesday as Louisville battles coronavirus issues. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

It’s not all bad news. The Badgers are now in the process of trying to put together a contract to play Rhode Island.

Well, this sure sucks. First, the Badgers dropped all the way to 13th in the AP Poll, and now our biggest non-conference game of the year isn’t happening as planned.

As a betting man, I’d go ahead and bet the game against Louisville doesn’t happen at all.

Our football team has been absolutely smashed by coronavirus this season, and now our basketball team has dropped a game because of the pandemic as well.

Welcome to sports in 2020! If you’re not used to this nonsense by now, then you’re just not paying attention.

Let’s hope the deal with Rhode Island gets done because we need a game Wednesday night! Don’t steal this from me, coronavirus!
