On Friday, the Big 12 announced a partnership with Virtual Care for Families to generate rapid antigen testing the day before competitions. 

The Quidel Rapid Antigen tests will generate 15-minute results as well as batch testing capabilities for quick results ahead of competition, according to the Big 12. 

While confirming the start of the season in August, the Big 12 also announced new policies surrounding COVID-19 precautions including three mandatory tests per week, positive test isolation periods and a minimum player count in the case of multiple positive tests team-wide. 

The 15-minute rapid testing adopted by the Big 12 is the latest development in ensuring a safe start to the 2020 football season.
