COVID-19 has continued to spread across the country, so it was long expected that many college football games would be postponed if not outright canceled over the course of the season. With many unknowns about the virus and its long-term effects, schools are taking every precaution necessary to make sure the student-athletes and staff are protected. As we enter Week 13 of the 2020 season, there have now been 101 games affected by COVID-19 with most postponements coming as a result of contact tracing protocols that require players to quarantine for 14 days if they are deemed to have been in high-risk contact with someone who has tested positive for the coronavirus.

Week 13 has already some games postponed, including Tennessee-Vanderbilt, Missouri-Arkansas and most recently Colorado-USC. The SEC then bumped up the Vanderbilt-Missouri game, which was scheduled for Dec. 12. The battle for “Paul Bunyan’s Axe” — the longest-running rivalry in college football — is also off due to COVID-19 issues. 

Some teams, such as Florida, Missouri, Houston, Memphis, Baylor, FAU, FIU, Virginia Tech, Arkansas State, Charlotte, Rice, Texas A&M and Arizona State have already experienced multiple game disruptions. Even those who have not seen a game postponed yet are living day-by-day as COVID-19 test results and subsequent contact tracing dictate if — and how effectively — they will be able to play as scheduled.

Here is the full list of college football game postponements.
