Kentucky’s basketball program is resuming practice on Monday and breaking its temporary COVID-inflicted postponement after being forced to postpone its SEC/Big 12 Challenge matchup Saturday with Texas. The Wildcats’ schedule has changed a bit because of the pause, with its SEC matchup with Missouri still on but moved from Tuesday to Wednesday to accommodate the league’s COVID-19 management protocols.

Not every program is fortunate enough to experience such a brief postponement. Michigan, for instance, is just one week into a two-week-long pause because of a mandate issued by the state. Oregon is also on a temporary pause, its second of the month. Both programs are dealing with the new COVID-19 variant, which is believed to transmit more efficiently.

They aren’t the only programs experiencing similar struggles, so below we’re tracking all the major postponements and cancellations related to COVID-19.
