There are a number of high school football games involving North Texas schools that have been canceled due to positive COVID-19 tests.

So far, there have been 17 games scheduled for this week that were canceled or postponed.

Smaller schools, 1A-4A, could start their season back in August, but 5A and 6A schools had to delay the start of their season, and some began playing games last week, while others have their first game set for this week.
