Husker spring practice on hold til at least April 6th

The Big Ten announced today that all organized team activities would be put on hold until at least April 6th in an attempt to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. That means Nebraska spring practices have been halted until further notice. Here is the statement from the conference:

“The Big Ten Conference will use this time to work with the appropriate medical experts and institutional leadership to determine next steps for moving forward in regard to the COVID-19 pandemic,” the league announced. “The main priority of the Big Ten Conference continues to be the health, safety and wellness of our student-athletes, coaches, administrators, fans and media as we continue to monitor all developing and relevant information on the COVID-19 virus.”

Big Ten has canceled all remaining winter and spring competitions including conference tournaments.
