BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — The University of Alabama at Birmingham has canceled their Nov. 20 game against the University of Texas-El Paso due to COVID-19 concerns.

UAB (4-3) already postponed their game Saturday versus North Texas due to positive tests of the virus.

The game against UTEP was moved to a new location after an outbreak of coronavirus was found in El Paso.

UAB says there is still a possibility of rescheduling the game but no official announcement has been made.

As of now, the next Blazers game is set for Nov. 27 at Legion Field versus Southern Mississippi.
