Bill Hancock, the Executive Director of the College Football Playoff, says they’re willing to postpone the New Year’s Six bowl games if there are COVID-19 incidents with the teams. There have already been issues with teams like South Carolina opting not to play in the bowl games. As of now, 11 bowl games have already been canceled, and Army was fortunate to find a landing spot in the Liberty Bowl after the University of Tennessee was forced to withdraw due to COVID issues.
The uncertainty in some cases forced some teams to decide to forego the bowl season altogether and finally allow their players to see their families rather than get involved in a game only to see it canceled for reasons beyond their control. Hopefully, there won’t be any more cancellations, and the remaining games can proceed as planned.
