15 Week 11 games postponed or canceled, including 6 with ranked teams

Six Top 25 teams won’t be playing as scheduled on Saturday.

No. 15 Coastal Carolina’s game vs. Troy was postponed Friday morning because of injuries and positive COVID-19 tests at Troy. As of Friday afternoon, there are now 15 games postponed or canceled for Week 11.

A makeup date for Coastal’s game was not immediately announced.

"While postponing a game is never an easy decision to make, it was the correct one in this instance as the health and well-being of our student-athletes and staff are of the utmost importance," Troy athletic director Brent Jones said in a statement. "I would like recognize and thank the Sun Belt Conference staff and officials from Coastal Carolina for their collaborative approach and effort to come to this very difficult decision. I would be remiss if I did not thank our amazing staff of medical professionals and athletic trainers for their expertise in guiding us through these unprecedented times."

The 15 college football games postponed in Week 11 come after 10 games were postponed or canceled in Week 10. It’s no coincidence that the rise in postponements and cancellations come as coronavirus cases across the country are spiking.

The rash of games moved off Saturday means that just 13 games involving ranked teams are currently on the Week 11 schedule. None of those 13 games involves teams that are both ranked.

The 15 games pushed back this week are the most of any week so far this season. Here are the six games involving top-25 games that have either been postponed or canceled.
