Miner Football game versus UAB canceled due to Covid-19 in Blazers’ program

UTEP’s football game versus UAB, scheduled for next Friday, November 20, in Midland, has been canceled due to positive COVID tests and subsequent contact tracing within the Blazers’ program.

UAB also cancelled its home game versus North Texas tomorrow for the same reason.

“While we are disappointed that we won’t be able to play, we understand and support UAB’s decision to cancel the game,” UTEP Director of Athletics Jim Senter said.  “The safety of their student-athletes and staff is the top priority.  We wish everyone a quick recovery, and hope the Blazers will be able to resume their season soon.”

The UTEP-UAB matchup was originally scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 21 in the Sun Bowl before being moved to Friday, Nov. 20 at Grande Communications Stadium in Midland.

The Miners (3-3, 0-2 C-USA) are slated to return to action Saturday at UTSA (4-4, 2-2 C-USA).  Kickoff is at 1:05 p.m. Mountain time, and the game will be streamed on ESPN+.

UTEP has remaining home games versus Southern Miss on Friday, December 4 (6 p.m. MT), and North Texas on Saturday, Dec. 12 at a time to be announced.
