Not too confident in this one being played either

No doubt our confidence has been tested. Other teams are pulling it off. So can we.

If this game happens, we need to dominate it. With Marshall being ranked now, we need to show that we're still a contender in CUSA.

Revolution- n. A large amount of change in a short amount of time. † FAU- n. The place where tomorrow begins.

I'd rather this game be postponed than play without multiple key starters. At full strength we are better than USF and I'd hate to lose this game just because we still have players out but forcing it through regardless. Guess we will see.

Unreal how national secrets are regularly leaked, but the covid report from FAU  is so guarded.

USF is having it's own COVID problems with many more opting out of the season than we do to start with

While we haven't had an update from FAU Athletics (that could change in about an hour), the University itself has updated their COVID-19 reporting procedure: FAU now breaks down COVID positives as either active or cumulative. In order to be removed from the active list, the student or employee would have to have two negative tests results.

There are 56 active cases on campus, 54 of which are students. Cumulatively, there are 137 cases, 132 of which are students. So, putting my current A in Math for Liberal Arts II course to use, there are 78 students that no longer have COVID after having tested positive at some point.

A source inside FAU Football personally believes that the game isn't likely, but the program is doing everything in their power to (safely) play.

USF AD Michael Kelly said he personally believes Saturday's game will be played.

Taggart believes that football will be played on Saturday. This comes after another round of testing on Sunday have yielded no new positive cases. Coach Taggart did hint that there are more tests that they're awaiting results for.
