This weekend’s SWAC matchup between Jackson State and Mississippi Valley State has been postponed. 

After blowing out Edward Waters in Coach Prime’s debut at Jackson State, the Tigers’ first conference matchup was set to take place at Veterans Memorial Stadium on Saturday. However, due to COVID-19 cases and contact tracing within the Delta Devil program, the game has now been pushed to March 14th. 

Saturday was supposed to be the season opener for MVSU as their 5-game conference slate begins. If they’re not able to play next week, MVSU won’t take the field until April 3rd against Arkansas Pine-Bluff. A matchup with Alcorn State was removed from the schedule after the Braves decided to opt-out of the spring season. 

Jackson State will be back in action next week as they travel to Grambling.
