Our community is especially hard-hit right now by this virus, and our team and our department have been doing everything possible to follow protocols and avoid the spread of the virus,” Utah Director of Athletics Mark Harlan said in a statement, “We were doing very well, day-by-day, and it is extremely difficult for our student-athletes and coaches that they will not be able to compete again this week.
Volgens NCAA.com, 15 van die 49 football games that were scheduled to kick off Saturday were either postponed or canceled due to Covid-19 issues.
    The announcement came just one day after the Southeastern Conference postponed multiple football gameswith seven originally scheduled and only three still set to playall because of Covid-19.
