BYU vs. Army Game Postponed After Cougars Announce Positive COVID-19 Tests

The BYU vs. Army college football game, which was scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 19, has been postponed after a "small number" of people within the Cougars football program tested positive for COVID-19.

On Saturday, BYU released a statement, which read: "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."

Per the statement, BYU and Army will attempt to reschedule the game, and the team will hold "small-group workouts" between now and when the team is cleared to hold full practices once again.
