The Big Ten is the latest Power Five conference to announce a team must forfeit if it doesn’t have enough players available for a league game because of COVID-19.
The Big Ten is the second to last of the Power 5 conferences to announce its COVID-19 forfeit policy, which closely follows its counterparts in the Pac-12, ACC and Big 12. The only difference with the ACC’s policy is if both teams are unable to compete, both teams will forfeit and it will be recorded as a loss.
THE OTHERS, If one of the two teams is unable to participate in a conference competition due to COVID-19, the team unable to participate will be given a “loss,” while the opponent will tally a “win,” and conference standings will adjust.
If both of the teams are unable to participate in a conference competition due to COVID-19 and the competition is unable to be rescheduled, it will be declared a “no contest.”
THE ONLY POWER 5 NOT HEARD FROM YET ABOUT FORFEIT’S, IS THE S.E.C.
The SEC has yet to finalize its 2021 COVID-19 game cancellation policy, but sources have confirmed to The Athletic that league officials are discussing a potential financial penalty that could be applied along with forcing a team to forfeit if it does not have the minimum number of players available.

Whit Merrifield had three hits and three RBI, Salvador Perez extended a career high with his 33rd homer and the Kansas City Royals beat the Houston Astros 7-1 on Monday night. The Royals have won seven of their last eight games, taking 3-of-4 from Houston at home last week before sweeping the Chicago Cubs this past weekend.
Patrick Mahomes is off to the greatest start for any quarterback in NFL history, already having a league MVP and Super Bowl title in his first four years in the NFL. The Kansas City Chiefs have every reason to sit their superstar quarterback in the preseason, yet head coach Andy Reid gives him significant snaps anyway.
Reid has done it this way for 23 seasons as a head coach, making sure his star quarterbacks are ready for the season by playing them significantly in the preseason. One less preseason game isn’t going to change that philosophy.
Mahomes played 33 snaps in Kansas City’s second preseason game. In a league where veteran quarterbacks Matthew Stafford and Aaron Rodgers aren’t even sniffing the field during the preseason, playing arguably the game’s best quarterback is a welcome change of pace.
“I think it’s good for Pat, but I also think it’s good for the offensive line and Pat to see how that’s going to work and get a feel for them, and for them to get a feel for him likewise,” Reid said to reporters Monday.
