Georgia State football postpones game due to COVID-19 tests, contact tracing

Georgia State University football is postponing their game Saturday at Charlotte because of positive COVID-19 tests and contact tracing within the Panthers' program. The school announced the postponement Friday afternoon, and confirmed to FOX 5 that the issues relating to COVID-19 were on their side, not Charlotte's.

According to a release from GSU, there is no determination yet on when the game might be rescheduled.

Charlotte's game scheduled for last Saturday against North Carolina was canceled because COVID-19 positive tests and contact tracing depleted the 49ers offensive line group.

Georgia State is next scheduled to host East Carolina next Saturday at noon.
