(The Advertiser)- UL’s ESPN-televised game Wednesday night at Appalachian State has been postponed, a Ragin’ Cajuns spokesman confirmed Thursday morning.
The reason: coronavirus (COVID-19) issues on App State’s end, according to the UL spokesman.
The game will instead be played either Dec. 4 or 5 in Boone, North Carolina, according to UL.
