MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Tuesday night’s Tigers game is postponed.

The game was set for an 8 p.m. tipoff at UCF but is now postponed because of positive COVID-19 cases and ongoing contact tracing at UCF, the American Athletic Conference announced Tuesday.

The AAC is working to reschedule the game.

It’s the Tigers’ second-straight game to be postponed because of COVID-19 involving the opponent. Memphis was due to play at Temple Saturday before the game was postponed.
