While the two teams will look to reschedule their game, Wisconsin is left without a weekend game, as Badgers officials said there will not be a non-conference in place of Northwestern.
The official announcement comes after comments from head coach Greg Gard, who shared his belief that the game would not be played prior to Wisconsin’s 63-60 win over the Penn State Nittany Lions.
“We don’t think it’s going to happen,” Gard said. “I learned a little bit about it this morning.”
Currently, Wisconsin’s next game appears to be next week against the Maryland Terrapins next Wednesday as of now.
