JONESBORO, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas State’s home football game against Central Arkansas has been pushed back from Saturday to Oct. 10. Arkansas State said Tuesday it cannot assemble a full two-deep depth chart at a specific position group due to player unavailability. The statement did not say if the postponement was COVID-19 related, but the program said “health and safety of our student-athletes will always come first.” All tickets purchased will be honored on the new date. Athletic director Terry Mohajir said the program looks forward to resume its regular schedule Sept 26 against Tulsa.
