News broke Monday evening that the Purdue vs. Nebraska basketball game on January 5th has been postponed “due to health and safety concerns”. This almost certainly means either a positive Covid-19 test or potential exposure to the virus in one or both of the Boilermakers and Cornhuskers programs.

The schools announced that they would be working with the Big Ten to find a date to reschedule the matchup later this season.

First and foremost, fans undoubtedly wish the best if someone in either program indeed did test positive for Covid-19.

Purdue’s Chris Forman tweeted just a short time ago that the Boilermaker’s game against Michigan State scheduled for Friday will go on as planned at this time.

There is no word on what the situation is or what this means for Purdue, but some information should be coming in the near future. Remember, with the HIPAA rules in place, the public may not know much about the situation until later on.

The Boilermakers have dropped two in a row and would welcome a struggling Nebraska squad into Mackey Arena to help get back on track, but that will have to wait until later this season.
