College Sports Has Reported at Least 6,629 Virus Cases

“We felt there was nothing to hide,” said Barry Alvarez, the athletic director at Wisconsin, which recorded at least 112 cases in athletics, missed back-to-back football games during an outbreak and had a third game canceled because of cases within Minnesota’s program. “We felt that it was in our best interest and everyone else’s best interest to put out accurate information, particularly if we had to cancel a game, so you wouldn’t have rumors or misinformation.”
