Sun Belt Conference Championship Game Canceled Due to COVID-19 Issues Within Coastal Carolina Footba

Louisiana Football will await learning of its bowl destination over the weekend

CONWAY - The Sun Belt Conference has announced that the conference championship game has been canceled due to a positive COVID-19 test within the Coastal Carolina program. Because of contact tracing, an entire position group would not be available to play due to possible exposure and therefore the game cannot be played.
 
"We are severely disappointed for our student-athletes and staff to not have the opportunity to play in what would have been a truly exciting championship game for the Sun Belt Conference," said Director of Athletics Bryan Maggard. "For our football program, fans and alumni, we look forward to learning of our bowl destination this weekend."
 
"We are very disappointed that the championship game cannot be played, but we are so proud of all of the players and staff members and their hard work during this truly challenging season," said Sun Belt Commissioner Keith Gill. "We will honor both teams as 2020 Sun Belt Conference Co-Champions."
