GAME THREAD: FAU @ MTSU - November 28, 2020
It has been the Owl's Nest policy not to disclose what student-athletes have tested positive for COVID-19, no matter the program, and that is a decision I am proud of. That said, this is a KEY player for Middle Tennessee's offense.
Still, FAU has played while short-handed multiple times this year, including against an undefeated top-25 program. Now, one player tests positive for Middle Tennessee and they're holding 135+ players, coaches, staff, and officials from FAU hostage.
#FAU vs. #MTSU UPDATE: a key player in the Middle Tennessee program has tested positive for #COVID19. Decision from MTSU on whether or not they will play tomorrow hangs on this one player's next test result. That decision will come tonight. The Owls are now off the bus.— FAU Owl's Nest (@FAU_Owls_Nest) November 27, 2020
Another MTSU player in this exact position tested positive earlier in the season, yet the Blue Raiders played on like normal.
