Middle Tennessee's home Conference USA game against Charlotte set for Saturday has been postponed due to Covid19 cases and contact tracing within the 49er program. The two schools will work with C-USA to reschedule the game later in the season.

The Blue Raiders and 49ers were set to kickoff Saturday afternoon at Floyd Stadium.

"These are obviously very challenging times. We understand and respect the decision by Charlotte," said Middle Tennessee director of athletics Chris Massaro. "First and foremost is the health and safety of the Charlotte program and we wish everyone involved a speedy recovery.

"This is disappointing but we look forward to our road game against nationally ranked Marshall next week. We appreciate our student-athletes and fans for their patience during these unprecedented times."
