No. 15 Coastal Carolina won’t play Troy on Saturday
Saturday’s game between No. 15 Coastal Carolina and Troy is off due to COVID-19 and injury concerns.
Troy is experiencing injuries and has coronavirus concerns within the same position group.
The Sun Belt Conference said Troy (4-3, 2-2), Coastal Carolina (7-0, 5-0) and the league are “working together to reschedule the game, which will be announced at a later date.”
“While postponing a game is never an easy decision to make, it was the correct one in this instance as the health and well-being of our student-athletes and staff are of the utmost importance,” Troy athletics director Brent Jones said. “I would like recognize and thank the Sun Belt Conference staff and officials from Coastal Carolina for their collaborative approach and effort to come to this very difficult decision. I would be remiss if I did not thank our amazing staff of medical professionals and athletic trainers for their expertise in guiding us through these unprecedented times.”
Troy plays Middle Tennessee on Saturday, Nov. 21. It is the second meeting between schools this season.
The unbeaten Chanticleers host Appalachian State on Nov. 21.
