UAB-North Texas football game off for Saturday

The Conference USA game between UAB and North Texas scheduled for Saturday won't be played because of a COVID-19 outbreak and contact tracing among the Blazers.

The schools said there’s a possibility the game could be rescheduled.

North Texas has already had to move games with Louisiana Tech (Dec. 3) and UTEP (Dec. 12). UAB is 4-3 overall and 2-1 in the league. North Texas has only played five games, winning two and going 1-2 in C-USA.
