TULSA, Okla. — The University of Tulsa football game against Arkansas State is postponed due to coronavirus concerns.

According to the Arkansas State Athletic's website, the A-State Red Wolves do not have enough players available in one specific position group for the team to play safely.

"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," said A-State Director of Athletics Terry Mohajir.

A-State officials said they are working with TU to find a new date to reschedule the game.
