"Battle For The Belt Postponed"
MOBILE, Ala. – Due to precautionary measures concerning the availability of student-athletes, the University of South Alabama announced Tuesday that Saturday's football game against Troy has been postponed.
A new date for the "Battle For The Belt" will be communicated at a later date.
With the announcement, the Jaguars will also be pausing football workouts on a temporary basis.
"This postponement is unfortunate, however it's prudent and wise. Our most significant concern is the well-being of our student-athletes," USA Director of Athletics Joel Erdmann said. "We are looking forward to hosting Troy at Hancock Whitney Stadium at a date to be determined. We appreciate the collaboration and understanding of Troy, and the leadership of the Sun Belt Conference office in working through this situation."
South is next scheduled to play host to Texas State on Saturday, Oct. 17.
