UTEP-Arizona Postponed Due to Positive Case in Miners Program
As a result of a positive case of COVID-19 and subsequent contact tracing within the UTEP program, the Arizona game on Sunday, Nov. 29, has been postponed.
Both sides are working on rescheduling the game, per the UTEP officials.
This is already the second postponement for the Wildcats this year and the first for UTEP. Head coach Rodney Terry said before the season started that his team had been free from the coronavirus all offseason long.
“This news is very disappointing to the student-athletes, coaches and fans,” the UA said in a release Friday. “However, health and safety must remain our top priorities as we move forward this season.”
The Miners routinely get tested every Monday, Wednesday and Friday during the season, which is when we should know more about the positive case. UTEP is scheduled to return to action on Thursday, Dec. 3 versus Arizona Christian at 7 p.m. MT in the Don Haskins Center. Sul Ross, who was originally on the schedule, has now been replaced by Arizona Christian.
