Texas Cancels Kansas Game Due To COVID


The University of Texas football game against Kansas that was scheduled for Saturday has been canceled due to UT's shutdown of football operations. The game is declared a "no contest" and will not be rescheduled.

"We are pausing all football team activities and shutting down football training facilities to get a COVID-19 spread among our Football program under control. We currently have nine student-athletes and 13 staff members who have tested positive this week, all of whom are in self-isolation. An additional 14 student-athletes and 15 staff members have been identified in contact tracing, and per COVID-19 protocols, are in quarantine at this time," said athletic director Chris Del Conte. "We will continue daily testing, monitor the situation and adhere to all of the medical team's health and safety protocols as we move forward with an abundance of caution in this situation. We're extremely disappointed that we won't be able to play our final regular season game at Kansas this week, but look forward to returning to action for our bowl game in the coming weeks."
