Another bowl game – this one set for New Year’s Eve – is in jeopardy of cancellation. This time, it is the Sun Bowl that is in danger.

On Sunday evening, Miami announced that the Hurricanes would be withdrawing from the Sun Bowl due to COVID-19 complications within the program.

“We are extremely disappointed that our football team will be unable to participate in the 2021 Tony the TIger Sun Bowl,” wrote Deputy Director of Athletics/Chief Operating Officer Jennifer Strawley. “But due to the number of COVID-19 cases impacting our roster we do not have enough student-athletes to safely compete.”

The Sun Bowl, slated for Friday at 12 pm EST, was originally scheduled for Miami vs. Washington State. At this point, it is tough to know if a replacement team will be able to fill in for the Hurricanes.

With a number of bowl games already canceled, we will have to wait and see if the Sun Bowl follows the same fate.
