2020 FAU Football Schedule
Georgia Southern unlike the Rays have a mass spread on campus as well as the football team. Football is a more physical sport than MLB. There is not DH positions or pinch hitting duties where he take one AN with with a pinch hitter and then rest on the bench.
I do not want a possible infection on FAU coming from a non conference opponent right before conference play.
They had 7 starters missing today and struggled against a weak opponent that I would have had a fit if FAU struggled against.
Both teams are looking to reschedule, with December 5th looking like the most likely on the condition that neither program makes their respective conference championship game.
CONFIRMED: #FAU's contest vs. @GSAthletics_FB will not be played tomorrow. Both programs are working to find a make-up date.— FAU Owl's Nest (@FAU_Owls_Nest) September 18, 2020

No ESPN+ Games! Yes!
Shoutout to the Athletics Department to get this done! But I for one hope we're playing for some hardware that day instead!
🏈 SCHEDULE UPDATE: @FAUFootball and @GSAthletics_FB have agreed to make-up their missed game on December 5th. BUT, the game WILL NOT BE PLAYED if #FAU plays in the #CUSA Championship, which is also scheduled for December, 5th. Well done, @Brian_E_White_! 👏👏 #GoOwls 👌 pic.twitter.com/LQzET35hjA— FAU Owl's Nest (@FAU_Owls_Nest) September 30, 2020
Pac12 and Big Ten are starting their games really late and their conference championships are scheduled later in December. What's the point of rescheduling if we might not be able to play that game.

Just asked an FAU spokesperson that same thing!
It is not known if there have been talks regarding moving the C-USA Championship. The decision would have to come from the conference and from the member institution's administrators. Say they would be the ones that would have to do the talking, and as you can imagine, they're all tight lipped about the matter.
The spokesperson did say it would make sense to push it back, giving teams a possible make-up date in case conference games have to be rescheduled.
owlmart saidPush the conference championship back 2 weeks, this gives teams the opportunity to makeup 2 or 3 games.Posted On: Sep 30th 2020, 12:50 PM
That would take common sense.
