Saturday's ULM-Tech game canceled

Published Nov. 16, 2020

The University of Louisiana Monroe's neutral site football game against Louisiana Tech, scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 21 in Shreveport, has been canceled due to continuing COVID-19 concerns within the Warhawk program.

“We’re extremely disappointed to announce the cancellation of this much anticipated game,” ULM Athletics Director Scott McDonald said. “Two rounds of COVID-19 tests following the team’s road trip to Georgia State required the isolation and quarantine of some student-athletes, coaches and administrators. Following the CDC and Sun Belt Conference protocols for positive tests and subsequent contact tracing, it is clear that our student-athletes and coaches don’t have adequate time to safely prepare for Saturday’s game. I will reach out to Dr. Eric Wood to begin discussions of renewing this rivalry in the very near future.”  

“I can’t express the disappointment our student-athletes and coaches feel in the forced cancellation of this game,” ULM head coach Matt Viator said. “Our team will resume normal football activities this weekend while turning its attention to the home finale on Nov. 28 against Louisiana Lafayette.”
