    Fucking 5 hours before kickoff? I’d be FUMING if I were the other team.

    Edit: This goes without saying but covid protocols should be observed but this seems like something perhaps the school could’ve concluded before travel.

    If this isn’t a forfeit it should be.

    Normally I wouldn’t have any issue here. No harm, no foul. The problem here is that with this little notice, there is definitely harm. If UCLA was having COVID issues, they should have pulled out days ago and saved everyone the trouble. At this point, they look like they’re taking advantage of the situation to avoid being run off the field by NC State.
