If COVID-19 saliva tests game-changers, did Big Ten, Pac-12 act too soon?

Yahoo SportsOn Tuesday, the Big Ten and Pac-12 canceled fall sports, including football. 

On Saturday, the FDA approved a coronavirus testing system known as SalivaDirect, which was developed by Yale University in conjunction with the NBA and the NBA Players Association. 

SalivaDirect is considered a “game changer” in testing because it is cheaper (as low as $4 a test), faster (results can come within a couple of hours and be handled by nearly any lab in the country) and easier (saliva, not nasal swabs) than current tests.
