“Governing agencies remain consistent in their position that fans in the stands, even socially distanced and with a wide-array of protocols in place, present a concerning risk for COVID transmission,” said Gladchuk.  “There are still three opportunities (Houston 10/24, Tulsa 11/7 and Memphis 11/14) where improving conditions may dictate justification to open our gates in a setting with extensive safety protocols.”

The Navy-Temple game will be televised nationally on CBS Sports. Kickoff is set for 6 p.m.
