The University of Memphis football game at UTSA on Friday, Sept. 25, has been canceled, due to positive COVID-19 cases at Memphis, and the ensuing quarantine of student-athletes. This game will not be rescheduled.
“While we project our quarantine and isolation numbers to improve next week, we felt it was in the best interest of the health and safety of our student-athletes to make this decision now,” said Laird Veatch, University of Memphis director of athletics. “This also allows UTSA the most flexibility to find a replacement opponent.”
Memphis will also add a game to the 2020 home schedule, as Stephen F. Austin will come to Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium on Saturday, November 21. Stephen F. Austin competes in the Southland Conference in the FCS division. It will be the second meeting between the two teams, as Memphis won the lone matchup 25-6 in 1959.
