The decision to postpone the two games comes after Rice decided to push back practice to late September during the coronavirus pandemic.

Is an FBS program postponing two games a good sign of things to come during the 2020 football season? The answer is an obvious no.

The last thing anyone wants to see are games getting postponed as we push forward through September.

Having said that, the entire schedule during the 2020 slate has been set up to accommodate changes. Everyone knew there’d be bumps on the road as we traveled the football season during the coronavirus pandemic.

Plus, there’s a big difference between a team like Rice and an SEC program. As long as all the major programs are fine, fans will be happy.

Let’s hope Rice bounces back quickly and is able to reschedule their games. Either way, there’s no reason to panic at all.
