North Texas’ (2-3, 1-2 Conference USA) road game against Alabama-Birmingham (4-3, 2-1 C-USA) scheduled for Saturday has been postponed due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases and subsequent contact tracing for the Blazers.

Saturday’s postponement marks the third straight postponement in the last three weeks.

“We are disappointed for our student-athletes that we won’t be playing our football game Saturday at UAB, especially since we were finally healthy and excited to get back to playing,” vice president and director of athletics Wren Baker said. “We understand the situation that UAB is in and we know that they are making this decision based on the health and safety of their student-athletes. We appreciate the communication with UAB and we look forward to hosting Rice next weekend.”

Stay tuned for any further updates on the possibility of rescheduling the conference matchup.
