Iowa has halted football activities.

According to Brett McMurphy, the Hawkeyes have halted all football activities ahead of the team’s December 30 matchup against Missouri in the Music City Bowl. HawkCentral.com reported that six coaches and multiple players have tested positive for coronavirus. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Despite not practicing, head coach Kirk Ferentz released a statement Monday night that the team is still hoping to play in a bowl game.

Obviously, this is the last thing anyone wants to see right now. The Hawkeyes are slated to close out the season against the Tigers, and now that seems like it might not happen.

Seeing as how many bowl games have already been canceled, the last thing we need is more games to hit the dirt.

Hopefully, Iowa is able to get this situation under control sooner than later, take a couple days to sort everything out and then bounce back.

Even as a Wisconsin man, I definitely don’t want to see Iowa miss a bowl game.

Let’s all keep our fingers crossed the Hawkeyes are on the field as scheduled against the Tigers.
