Middle Tennessee Men's Basketball will have to wait a little longer to open Conference USA play in the 2020-21 season, as the Blue Raiders have postponed this weekend's games at Florida Atlantic.
The postponement is due to positive COVID-19 test results and contact tracing within the Blue Raider program. Both MT and Florida Atlantic are working with Conference USA to reschedule these games for a later date.
This marks the third time MT's schedule has been altered due to the COVID-19 pandemic this season. Akron canceled its game against the Blue Raiders in the Gulf Coast Showcase to start the season, then MT canceled its home-and-home with Bellarmine, which was scheduled for Dec. 19 and Dec. 21.
MT is scheduled to host FIU on Jan. 8 at 6 p.m. and Jan. 9 at 4 p.m.
