UTEP President Heather Wilson said the school was disappointed with North Texas’ decision not to come to El Paso.
“We have a safe place to play and no players who are sick or in isolation,” Wilson said in a statement.
UTEP had decided to play the game without fans in attendance.
The four schools said they are working with C-USA to reschedule the games.
The number of games involving FBS teams postponed or canceled since Aug. 26 is up to 36.
For Marshall (5-0), this is the third time this season it has had a game postponed because of an opponent’s struggles with COVID-19. The Thundering Herd did not play a nonconference game against East Carolina and a conference game against Rice in September.
The is the second game FIU (0-3) has had to postpone.
A total of seven Conference USA league games have been postponed.
This is the second time in three weeks UTEP has had to call off a home game. The first postponement was because of COVID-19 issues with Southern Mississippi. In between, the Miners played and lost at Charlotte.
“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,” Wilson said.
