"We are disappointed that North Texas has chosen not to come to El Paso for the football game this weekend.

"We have a safe place to play and no players who are sick or in isolation, and North Texas has not indicated that any of their players are ill. We made the decision earlier today not to allow fans in the stadium.

"We are proud of the diligence that our student-athletes, coaches and staff have shown to put us in a position to play every week.

"We look forward to further discussions with Conference USA and North Texas on whether or when this game will be rescheduled.”
