The Ohio Valley Conference football season opener between Tennessee State and Jacksonville State scheduled for Sunday, February 21 in Hale Stadium has been postponed due to the winter storms in the middle Tennessee area.
  
“As the Director of Athletics, I’m responsible for making decisions that are in the best interest of our student-athletes and the university,” said Dr. Mikki Allen. “The snow storm has had an impact on our field and presents safety concerns due to unplayable conditions. At no point will we ever compromise the health, safety and welfare of our student-athletes.”


 The game has been rescheduled for Sunday, March 7.
 
Purchased tickets can be used for the rescheduled contest or individuals can request a refund. Ticketmaster will send out an alert to fans that purchased tickets directly.
