BYU-Army Game Postponed Due to COVID-19 Cases

No game for BYU at Army next week.

BYU announced that next week’s matchup at Army has been postponed due to COVID-19 cases.

BYU released a statement: “As a result of a small number of positive COVID-19 test results and the resulting tracing exposures within the BYU football program, a mutual decision was made to postpone the football game on Sept. 19 between Army and BYU. The decision was made after consultation with the BYU administration, state public health officials and medical advisors, and in coordination with the leadership at Army West Point.”

The statement also said BYU-Army will attempt to reschedule the game. Both teams have an open date on November 28. However, it’s disappointing this game won’t happen next week. BYU has been getting a lot of national love and had a chance to prove itself again on prime spot on CBS. Army is 2-0 and has looked dominant in both of its wins. The game next week was even a prime candidate for College Gameday to host.

BYU’s next game is now September 26 in Provo versus Troy.
