From USAToday:

East Carolina-Marshall football game postponed due to COVID-19 concerns

Another college football game is off the Sept. 12 schedule due to COVID-19 concerns, another sign of trouble for schools hoping to complete a fall season.

East Carolina’s home opener against Marshall has been postponed, ECU announced Thursday. A make-up date has not been determined, but officials at both schools are hopeful the non-conference game can be rescheduled. The Pirates play in the American Athletic Conference, while Marshall plays in Conference USA.

"We are disappointed we won't be able to host Marshall for our season-opener, but our top priority remains the health and safety of our student-athletes, coaches, staff, fans and our community," ECU athletics director Jon Gilbert said in a statement.

East Carolina reported several COVID clusters on campus last week, prompting school officials to move all undergraduate classes online starting this week. The Pirates will now open their season Sept. 26 against AAC opponent Central Florida.

Gilbert said he still hopes a limited number of fans can attend if state and local guidelines permit. The Thundering Herd, meanwhile, are now slated to open at home on Sept. 19 against Appalachian State.

Earlier this week, Virginia Tech and North Carolina State had their Atlantic Coast Conference opener set for Sept. 12 pushed back two weeks.

Not college, but a full slate of high school football happens tonight in Oklahoma and, I assume, in other states. I lost count at 40 games in Oklahoma tonight ( likely more like 60). I have no comment, just that information.

Clay Travis is basically Kyle Boone but for all of college football.

He's the guy who would yell about a forest fire for three pages and then mention it was a controlled burn by rangers.

I'm in College Station. Kids have been back for a few weeks now. Town grows from 50K to 100K.

Right now we have 6 count 'em. 6 hospitalizations due to COV. And not all 6 are in ICU.

Has the positive tests gone up. Sure. But the reason for shutting things down and quarantine has been to account for limited ICU capacity.
