Alabama A&M - Grambling State game canceled; Connell Maynor reacts

For the 4th time this season, Connell Maynor and the Alabama A&M Bulldogs will not face a SWAC foe due to the opponent's Covid-19 related issues.

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — Alabama A&M football fans won't see their team in action again this weekend. 

This evening, the Alabama A&M athletic department was informed that members of the Grambling State football team had tested positive for the Coronavirus and were put into quarantine immediately. 

This is the 4th time this season, that Alabama A&M has had a game canceled or postponed this season. Their game against Alcorn State was canceled after the Braves opted out of the season. Contests against Prairie View & Mississippi Valley State were postponed to later dates due to Covid-19 with the Panthers and Delta Devils. And today, the GSU-Alabama A&M game was canceled  as the Tigers have open dates on April 10 and 24 but A&M is scheduled to play each of the next four weeks through April 24. The following week is not available as the Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) Championship Game is set for May 1.

With the cancellation, A&M will return to the field on Saturday, April 3 as they travel to Prairie View A&M for a previously rescheduled contest.
