UTEP-Southern Miss Postponed Due to COVID-19 Case with Golden Eagles
Saturday's contest between UTEP and Southern Miss has been postponed after the Golden Eagles experienced an increase in COVID-19 cases, per a release.
Both universities and the league will work on rescheduling the game for a later date in the season. Earlier this week, C-USA pushed back its championship game two weeks to Dec. 18 to allow for makeup weeks. The Miners could pick up the Golden Eagles in early December as a possible make-up date.
“While we are disappointed that we won’t be able to play this weekend, the health and safety of everyone involved is always the top priority,” UTEP Director of Athletics Jim Senter said. “We wish everyone at Southern Miss a quick recovery and hope to reschedule this game for later in the season in consultation with Conference USA.”
All tickets for the Oct. 17 game will be valid for the rescheduled date, per UTEP athletics.
UTEP (3-2) will resume action next Saturday at Charlotte in Jerry Richardson Stadium. Kickoff is set for 10 AM mountain standard time.
