The BYU vs. Army game has been postponed "due to a small number of positive COVID-19 tests and the resulting tracing exposures within the BYU football program."

The ACC has released a set of guidelines spelling out conditions that could cause games to be postponed and the season halted.


While the statement indicated that the ACC will continue to "monitor the changing situation and is prepared at any time to adjust schedules and games," the decision whether to play or not play will rest with discretion the participating teams.

According to the ACC's guidelines announced by the league's board of directors, football teams must have an "adequate" number of players available from it's original full roster. Although no specific number is mentioned, the guidelines specify that at least seven scholarship offensive linemen must be dressed and available to play.


Considerations that can lead to the discontinuation of games include:


- A COVID-19 cluster within either or both teams competing in the game based on the previous week's test results.

- An inability to isolate new COVID-19 cases or quarantine high contact risk cases.

- Unavailability or inability to perform symptomatic, surveillance or precompetition testing as required.

- Campus-wide or local community transmission rates that are considered unsafe by local public health officials.

- Inability to perform adequate contact tracing consistent with governmental requirements or recommendations.



If a team is not able to compete because of one or more of the above conditions and the game can not be rescheduled, the game will be considered a "no contest" and will not be counted in the ACC standings.

As for the season as a whole, the board of directors have the option to pull the plug if either the SEC or Big 12 discontinue playing football this fall or if the College Football Playoff is canceled.



Other conditions that could lead to a premature end to the season include:


- Prohibitive policies implemented by state, local and campus health authorities or leadership.

- Campus disruption that would not allow practices or competition to continue.

- COVID-19 clusters (as defined by the institution and/or local public health officials) within multiple teams that result in full discontinuation of the season rather than limited isolation of participants.

- An inability to travel safely and compete in away venues without contracting or spreading COVID-19.

Saturday's Charlotte / UNC game has been canceled.


From Charlotte:

“Several members of the offensive line were placed into quarantine following the University's COVID-19 contact tracing protocols, effectively depleting that unit.”

COVID positives with the Bears.


Baylor and Houston badly needed this game. Another postponement is a brutal setback for these teams.

Dana Holgorsen *yesterday* explained why:

Houston AD Chris Pezman:

"It would be difficult at best to still find a way to play Baylor this season. In my mind (it's canceled)."

FSU coach Mike Norvell is positive for coronavirus, won't coach next week vs. Miami.


FSU AD David Coburn says Norvell is isolated, contact tracing is underway. We will continue to test staff and student-athletes as we have been.

"At this point, based on our testing this week, we have no reason to believe that the Miami game is in jeopardy."

Memphis won't be playing UTSA on Friday as its struggles with the Kung Flu continue.


UTSA will instead host Middle Tennessee in San Antonio.

94 tests were given to Notre Dame football players on Monday ... 7 positives.

Those 7 are in isolation and their close contacts have been/are being identified.

Combined with last week’s testing results, a total of 13 players are currently in isolation, with 10 in quarantine.

Both have idle weeks on Oct. 3 so that would make sense for rescheduling. At some point (soon) there won't be shared open weeks left for teams in this situation, and those games will end up needing to be straight cancelations.

Georgia State vs. Charlotte has been postponed.


Postponed due to positive test results and contact tracing quarantines at Georgia State.
