Team practices scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday have also been canceled to complete contract tracing and notify students who may have been exposed.
"I know this may be disappointing news for our players, families, and students who show up to support our student-athletes each week," Smith said. "Our hope is that we can return next week stronger than ever, ready to celebrate a very special homecoming week."
