Hawaii the latest to see football game vs. FCS foe squashed due to pandemic
Hawaii’s football team is scrambling to add another opponent to its 2020 schedule after an FCS foe has canceled its Sept. 12 clash with the Warriors.
A Week 2 matchup between Fordham and Hawaii has been squashed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic — the third major college football game to be canceled. Fordham, which is a member of the Patriot League, would not be able to meet the conference’s guidelines by making the Sept. 12 trip to Honolulu.
Last month, the Patriot League mandated that all of its member schools are not permitted to travel by air or stay overnight in another location. That means Fordham will not be allowed to make the trip to Honolulu.
Two other games have been canceled due to the same circumstances — Colgate vs. Western Michigan and Lafayette College vs. Navy.
Hawaii is currently looking for a new opponent for the Sept. 12 date. The Warriors are currently scheduled to open the 2020 season in a Week 0 matchup against Arizona on Aug. 29.
