8 FBS games have already been postponed due to COVID-19 issues
We’ve all known for months that college football would not look the same in 2020 as it has throughout the course of its history. That’s attributed to the limited crowd size, facial coverings on the sidelines and the potential to see games canceled or postponed on a more frequent basis.
Already, we’ve seen quite a few postponements for the 2020 season.
Per Stadium’s Brett McMurphy, there have already been eight games at the FBS level that have been postponed due to COVID-19 issues. Some of those games have been rescheduled and some have not yet released a make-up date — if there even will be one.
Below are the games that have already been delayed due to the pandemic:
- Rice vs. Houston (Sept. 3) — No reschedule date yet
- Louisiana-Monroe vs. Troy (Sept. 5) — Dec. 5
- SMU vs. TCU (Sept. 11) — No reschedule date yet
- N.C. State vs. Virginia Tech (Sept. 12) — Sept. 26
- Marshall vs. East Carolina (Sept. 12) — No reschedule date yet
- Tulsa vs. Oklahoma State (Sept. 12) — Sept. 19
- Rice vs. Marshall (Oct. 3) — No reschedule date yet
- UAB vs. Rice (Oct. 10) — No reschedule date yet
So far, 10 games have been played at the college level, with teams at the FCS and FBS levels participating. There have been no Power 5 teams take the field yet this season, but that changes next weekend when the ACC and Big 12 start their seasons.
The SEC is scheduled to begin on Sept. 26.
The B1G, Pac-12, Mountain West and MAC have all postponed the 2020 college football season.
