TULSA, Okla. -

The Tulsa Golden Hurricane and Arkansas State will postpone the September 26 matchup because of a shortage of players.

According to Arkansas State, they are unable to assemble a "two-deep depth chart at one position group that would allow the game to be played safely."

Arkansas State said they are working with Tulsa officials to find a new date to reschedule the game.

"We are postponing our game against Tulsa because the amount of unavailable players at one specific position group doesn't allow for us to safely play the game," said Arkansas State Director of Athletics Terry Mohajir. "This is a result of a combination of positive tests on Monday and other players still displaying symptoms, as well as having time to safely reacclimate prior to the game. This decision is based on the ability to safely field a two-deep at the position group rather than the total number of players unavailable. We are taking all precautions as our student health and safety remains our first and foremost priority. We are working with Tulsa to mutually reschedule the game, and we look forward to beginning Sun Belt Conference play next week with our Oct. 3 game at Coastal Carolina."

Tulsa has not yet addressed the situation.
