American Athletic Conference commissioner Mike Aresco announced football return to competition testing protocols in a statement Thursday afternoon.
With guidance from the conference’s COVID-19 Medical Advisory Group, protocols include all teams to be tested 72 hours prior to each competition which will include regular season games and bowl games.
“We are committed to meeting or exceeding all guidelines and standards recommended by the NCAA and its member institutions in all fall sports, including football,” the statement says.
Olympic sports testing and operational protocols are still being finalized, according to the statement.
Temple Football will be losing its non-conference game against Rutgers after the Big 10 cancelled its non-conference schedule games. As of right now there has been no announcement of games being cancelled or postponed for the AAC.
