Middle Tennessee cancels Florida Atlantic game due to COVID-19

Middle Tennessee has canceled Saturday's home football game against Florida Atlantic due to COVID-19 cases, contact tracing and injuries inside the Blue Raiders.

No makeup date has been set yet, and Middle Tennessee will be working with Conference USA for rescheduling a game between teams that have played each other every season since 2003.

Middle Tennessee athletic director Chris Massaro says this is disappointing for both the program and fans but that it's out of their control. Massaro thanked FAU's administrators for their cooperation and understanding and notes cases are increasing all over the country making this very challenging times.
