We’ve known college football would look much different in 2020, as teams attempt to navigate playing games while in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic. That could mean a lot of inactive players on a given week, or potential postponement or cancellation of games.
So far, this is the first mass amount of inactive players for a single team we’ve seen this season, but this marks just the second full Saturday of college football.
Georgia Southern and Campbell are set for a 3:30 p.m. ET kickoff on Saturday. The game can be seen on ESPNU.
