UND football game at Youngstown State postponed due to UND coronavirus issues
UND and Youngstown State game won't be played Saturday.
GRAND FORKS -- The University of North Dakota football team's hopes of rebounding from its first loss of the season will have to wait.
The No. 6 Fighting Hawks' game Saturday at Youngstown State was called off Friday morning, March 26 due to coronavirus issues within the UND travel party.
UND, 4-1, was scheduled to play at Stambaugh Stadium in Youngstown, Ohio, at 11 a.m. Saturday.
The matchup is among several games that have been affected by coronavirus in the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision this spring season.
Earlier this week, UND's final road trip of the season at Illinois State was called off as the Redbirds have decided to opt out of the remainder of the spring season due to health concerns.
It's expected that UND and Youngstown State will play April 17, an open week in the Missouri Valley Football Conference schedule set aside for COVID postponements.
UND's next scheduled home game is now April 3 at home against Missouri State at 11 a.m.
