The Cincinnati Bearcats at Tulsa Golden Hurricane football game scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 17 has been postponed, it was announced on Thursday. "As the university, the conference and the NCAA have said throughout this pandemic, the health and safety of our student-athletes are at the forefront of all decisions".

Tulsa (1-1, 1-0 AAC), which hasn't played a home game since November 23, 2019, played its season opener at Oklahoma State a week after it was originally scheduled.

The AAC's news release mentions that student-athletes have been quarantined as a result of COVID-19 diagnoses on campus but does not clarify whether these athletes are, in fact, COVID-19 positive.

The game was postponed due to novel coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) issues at Cincinnati. The Golden Hurricane next play South Florida on October 23.

Tulsa had designated Saturday's matchup as the school's homecoming game. "This TU Homecoming game was a great opportunity to showcase our football program, the community and the American Athletic Conference against the nation's No. 8 team", Tulsa AD Rick Dickson said.
