Nittany Notebook (10-29): PSU men’s basketball to play at Va. Tech in Big Ten/ACC Challenge

Welcome to our daily Nittany Notebook. This post will be updated frequently throughout the day with news, notes and sometimes entertaining info.

**Well, that was interesting for about 20 minutes.

It appears the Big Ten has put the kibosh on Nebraska playing this weekend.

The Big Ten apparently wants no part of its members looking to play teams outside the conference, which Nebraska also looked into doing and was rebuked when the conference initially decided to postpone the season in early August.

Update: 10:25 a.m.

**It looks like Nebraska is going to try and play a non-conference game this weekend against Chattanooga. Since the Huskers can’t play Wisconsin because of a COVID outbreak within the Badgers, this makes sense.

However, will the Big Ten allow this?

And if so, will it set a precedent if future Big Ten games are canceled because of an outbreak with one team.
