“There were several contributing factors to our decision to move the date of this game,” said ULM athletic director Scott McDonald. “It included consulting with our healthcare professionals on our COVID-19 Advisory Committee, discussions with Coach (Matt) Viator, the realization that our student-athletes would not have sufficient time to re-establish conditioning and return-to-play protocols and the impact of Hurricane Laura on our communities across North Louisiana. I cannot overstate the appreciation we have for Troy Athletics Director Brent Jones and Sun Belt Commissioner Keith Gill. They have been tremendous in their support and shared concern for our student-athletes. We look forward to getting back on the field, preparing for Army and the rest of our schedule.”
