Appalachian State-Georgia Southern postponed

Appalachian State postponed next week’s game at Georgia Southern on Wednesday due to a continuing COVID-19 situation at the school in Boone, N.C.

The contest, originally scheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 14, was pushed back to Dec. 12 in Statesboro, Ga. The game time will be announced later.

This is the second postponement in as many weeks for the Mountaineers, whose Oct. 7 home game with Louisiana will now be played on Dec. 4 or 5.

Appalachian State (2-1, 0-0 Sun Belt) has not held a practice since before its 52-21 win against Campbell on Sept. 26.

“All active COVID-19 cases are recovering in isolation,” the school said in a news release issued Wednesday. “Close contacts who have been identified through contact tracing are required to quarantine.”

The Mountaineers are in their first full season under head coach Shawn Clark. Clark led the team to a New Orleans Bowl victory against UAB in 2019 after a 12-1 season under Eli Drinkwitz, now the head coach at Missouri.

Appalachian State’s next scheduled game is Oct. 22 at home against Arkansas State. Georgia Southern (2-1, 1-1) is at Coastal Carolina on Oct. 24.
