At this rate, I'm afraid there may not be many more games.

UTEP should swallow its pride and play a couple of these games on the road. Better than not playing at all.

FIU canceled because of an outbreak in their team. They have several positions groups without scholarship players at the moment because of infection and quarantine.

Napoli in Italy was awarded a LOSS by the Calcio Italiano League when they refused to play against Juventus (at Juventus) due to some other authority saying some players from Napoli had Covid, it turned out non had it. But they still were awarded a 3-0 loss and no points for not showing up. I think Conference USA should do the same and award a loss to the teams refusing to play in El Paso. And award UTEP a WIN or at least 3 wins at this point.

UTSA has postponed their game with Rice this week and the rates of infection are heading up across the nation. Have a feeling that this season is done and I am having my doubts about basketball as well. Hard to keep a positive outlook on this season and athletics in general at this point.

For basketball there will be no band at the game and no floor seating whatsoever. Allegedly the first 6 rows will be vacant as well and (if you believe the rumors) plexiglass installed.

Just like during the Orlando NBA bubble. If it is true about taking out the first six rows out at the DHC, why @UTEPAthletics did not do it at the Sun 😎 Bowl as well?
Does that mean that UTEP women's volleyball 🏐 will be playing there as well? Reason I am asking because #1 volleyball team in the country TX are playing at the Erwin Center instead of their smaller Gregory Gym.

The way things continue to change I imagine there's the possibility of no fans at all. Sun Bowl is outdoors and things were different 2 momths ago.

Band being banned (sorry, I had to) is a conference wide thing.

I think schools should test on Sunday and make a decision if they are going to be able to play by Tuesday, so teams can schedule another game if possible.
