College football schedule 2020: The 28 games already postponed or canceled due to COVID-19

With COVID-19 still raging across the country, it was long expected that many college football games would be postponed if not outright canceled over the course of the season. As we enter Week 5 of the 2020 season, there have now been 24 games affected by COVID-19 with most postponements coming as a result of contact tracing protocols that require players to quarantine for 14 days if they are deemed to have been in high-risk contact with someone who has tested positive for the coronavirus.

Some teams, such as Houston, Memphis, Baylor, FAU, Virginia Tech, Arkansas State, Charlotte and Rice have already experienced multiple game disruptions. Even those who have not seen a game postponed yet are living day-by-day as COVID-19 test results and subsequent contact tracing dictate if — and how effectively — they will be able to play as scheduled.

Some leagues, such as the Big 12 and SEC, have established minimum player thresholds requiring that teams have a certain number of players available at specific positions. The disruptions have highlighted the issues facing the 2020 season with two of the Power Five conferences (four overall) still yet to begin play. The SEC is scheduled to start on Sept. 26 with the Big Ten slated to return the weekend of Oct. 24 and the Pac-12 eyeing a return on Nov. 6.

The Big Ten and Pac-12 announced they plan to conduct daily testing, which should help programs identify positive cases quickly and reduce the burden of contact tracing. But even with daily testing, successfully holding a season with no bye weeks leading up to the College Football Playoff will be a challenge.

Here is every Power 5 college football game postponed for Week 7 because of COVID-19

We’re only one day through the work week and already two Power 5 college football games have been postponed because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

This week’s postponements bring to five the total number of Power 5 games that have been postponed this season — including the first in the SEC. In all, 31 FBS games have been postponed because of the coronavirus pandemic in the 2020 season.

Postponed Week 7 college football games

No. 7 Oklahoma State at Baylor

The Big 12 Conference on Sunday announced the postponement of the Cowboys-Bears game in Waco, Texas, due to an outbreak within the Bears program. The game will be rescheduled for Saturday, Dec. 12; the conference’s championship game is scheduled for that weekend or Dec. 19, depending on which teams will compete in the championship.

Per the Big 12’s release:

“The Big 12 Conference announces the postponement of the Saturday, Oct. 17, Oklahoma State at Baylor football game. Upon the recommendation of medical advisors, Baylor is suspending football operations temporarily after multiple positive COVID-19 test results. The game has been rescheduled for Saturday, December 12. The Dr Pepper Big 12 Championship remains tentatively scheduled for Dec. 12 or 19 pending game results needed to determine the championship game participants.”

Baylor halted all football operations Thursday “to allow for further evaluation of recent positive tests and the completion of close contact tracing, with the hope of playing the Cowboys the ensuing week.” Three days later, the Bears were forced to postpone because of “significant increase in positive COVID-19 cases,” which caused an unnamed position group to fall below the Big 12’s minimum threshold of available players.

Baylor did not initially report how many players produced positive coronavirus test results but, per a report from Max Olson of The Athletic, that number includes 28 football players and 14 team staffers.

Sunday’s announcement marks the third game involving Baylor that has been postponed or canceled this season. The first came in Week 2, when the Bears’ scheduled game against Louisiana Tech was indefinitely postponed because 38 Bulldogs players tested positive for the coronavirus after Hurricane Laura hit the state of Louisiana.

Ten days later, Baylor’s scheduled game against Houston — organized after the Louisiana Tech opener was canceled — was also postponed because of the Bears “not meeting the Big 12 Conference COVID-19 game cancellation thresholds.” The Big 12 earlier in the month had mandated that all teams must be able to field a 53-player roster order to play a game.

Vanderbilt at Missouri

The SEC on Monday announced that this game, to be held in Columbia, Mo., was postponed to Dec. 12 following positive tests among Vanderbilt players. It is the first postponed game of the season in the SEC.

College football schedule 2020: The 25 games already postponed or canceled due to COVID-19

With COVID-19 still raging across the country, it was long expected that many college football games would be postponed if not outright canceled over the course of the season. As we enter Week 5 of the 2020 season, there have now been 24 games affected by COVID-19 with most postponements coming as a result of contact tracing protocols that require players to quarantine for 14 days if they are deemed to have been in high-risk contact with someone who has tested positive for the coronavirus.

Some teams, such as Houston, Memphis, Baylor, FAU, Virginia Tech, Arkansas State, Charlotte and Rice have already experienced multiple game disruptions. Even those who have not seen a game postponed yet are living day-by-day as COVID-19 test results and subsequent contact tracing dictate if — and how effectively — they will be able to play as scheduled.

Some leagues, such as the Big 12 and SEC, have established minimum player thresholds requiring that teams have a certain number of players available at specific positions. The disruptions have highlighted the issues facing the 2020 season with two of the Power Five conferences (four overall) still yet to begin play. The SEC is scheduled to start on Sept. 26 with the Big Ten slated to return the weekend of Oct. 24 and the Pac-12 eyeing a return on Nov. 6.

The Big Ten and Pac-12 announced they plan to conduct daily testing, which should help programs identify positive cases quickly and reduce the burden of contact tracing. But even with daily testing, successfully holding a season with no bye weeks leading up to the College Football Playoff will be a challenge.
