HOUSTON, TX- The University of Houston has to put off yet another opening night game after its opponent from North Texas pulls out of the game.
The UH Athletic department announced the cancellation is COVID-19 related, not even a week after Baylor called out for the same reason.
UH Vice President Chris Pezman said:
“We understand this COVID-related decision North Texas has made to not play Saturday’s game and appreciate the consistent dialogue with our program by UNT Athletics Director Wren Baker, his administration, and medical staff during this week. I am disappointed for our student-athletes who have continued to focus on competing this season and were ready to play this Saturday. We will continue to work to adjust our schedule with the hopes of playing as soon as we can.”
Representatives from the school confirmed on Twitter that due to positive test results the game would need to be rescheduled to a later date.
