COLLEGE STATION, TX — The November 14 Texas A&M game against Tennessee has been postponed to December.

The game will now be played on December 12 in Knoxville, Tennessee.

In a statement, A&M Athletic Director Ross Bjork revealed there are currently three active cases of COVID-19 within the football program. Two of the cases traveled to South Carolina.

Bjork said the nature of the away-game travel lead to an increase in the number of student-athletes, coaches and staff who met the criteria for mandatory quarantine based on contact tracing guidelines.

Coach Jimbo Fisher said in a statement the health and safety of the football players is first and foremost.

This comes one day after Coach Fisher announced plans to pause practice activities for the day.
