The American Athletic Conference has announced that the scheduled football game between Houston and Memphis has been postponed, due to positive COVID-19 cases at Memphis and the ensuing quarantine of student-athletes.
The game had been scheduled for Friday, Sept. 18. The conference will reschedule the game on a date to be determined.
Statement by University of Memphis Director of Athletics Laird Veatch
“I am disappointed that we will be unable to play the Houston game at this time, but a season without a pause or change was always going to be unlikely. We will continue to closely monitor all of those impacted and do what is best for the safety and health of our student-athletes, coaches, and staff.”
