For those of you keeping track at home, multiple bowl games have now been canceled because of a surge of COVID-19.
The hits keep coming and the situation doesn’t appear to be subsiding anytime soon.

My biggest concern is that this isn’t the last bowl game that gets canceled. I have a weird feeling that more cancelations are coming.
Personally, I’m not panicked at all, but it’s clear teams are looking at it in a very different way.
