Georgia State cancels Charlotte game amid COVID-19 worries

Georgia State postponed its football game at Charlotte, scheduled for Saturday, “out of an abundance of caution” following COVID-19 positive tests and contact tracing, Georgia State announced Friday.

In a news release, the school said the nonconference game had not been rescheduled.

This is the second straight unplanned week off for Charlotte, a Conference USA squad. Last week’s game against North Carolina was canceled because of a COVID-19 quarantine among Charlotte’s offensive linemen. The 49ers are 0-1 on the season after a 35-20 loss to Appalachian State on Sept. 12.

Charlotte is scheduled to open the 2020 Conference USA schedule at FAU on Oct. 3. The Owls have yet to play this season, with four games either canceled or rescheduled because of coronavirus-related reasons. That includes a game against South Florida, which was scheduled for Saturday.

Georgia State lost to Louisiana last weekend, 34-31, in the Panthers’ only game of the season so far. The Panthers are scheduled to host East Carolina on Oct. 3.
