With college football starting as soon as August 29th, there are teams returning to campus for voluntary and mandatory workouts across America. And that will often mean outbreaks of Covid-19 that will cause teams to stop practicing or having any team activities whatsoever.
While several teams have quarantined and come out with no issues, this is a list of teams that aren’t able to practice as of right now because of outbreaks of Covid-19. We’ll add and subtract from this list as we see teams stop and start practices.
The NCAA Board of Governors decided to allow each of their three divisions to choose whether championships will take place in each sport, but the NCAA Division I Council will decide on the fate of FBS college football which is separately governed.
