Arkansas State lacks depth, can’t play Tulsa

Arkansas State and Tulsa won’t play Saturday as scheduled because the Red Wolves are shorthanded at one unspecified position group.

The Red Wolves are continuing a battle with COVID-19.

“We are postponing our game against Tulsa because the amount of unavailable players at one specific position group doesn’t allow for us to safely play the game,” athletic director Terry Mohajir said Wednesday in a news release. “This is a result of a combination of positive tests on Monday and other players still displaying symptoms, as well as having time to safely reacclimate prior to the game.

“This decision is based on the ability to safely field a two-deep at the position group rather than the total number of players unavailable. We are taking all precautions as our student health and safety remains our first and foremost priority.”

Arkansas State has played two games on the 2020 season — a loss to Memphis on Sept. 5 and a win over Kansas State on Sept. 12. A Sept. 19 game against Central Arkansas was also postponed.

Tulsa is 0-1 after a loss to Oklahoma State on Saturday, but games against Toledo and Northwestern State were canceled.

That Tulsa-Oklahoma State contest was moved from Sept. 12 as the Golden Hurricane got back on track after a coronavirus-related interruption.

The news release said the two schools would attempt to reschedule the game, which was set for Jonesboro, Ark.
