UL-Lafayette football game at Appalachian State postponed due to positive COVID-19 tests
LAFAYETTE - The University of Louisiana at Lafayette game at Appalachian State has been postponed due to positive COVID-19 tests and contact tracing within the Mountaineers’ football program.
The Ragin Cajuns were set to go head-to-head against Appalachian State on Wednesday, Oct. 7 but the game has been postponed by the Mountaineers.
Both teams will face each other either on Friday, Dec. 4, or Saturday, Dec. 5, in Boone, N.C.
