COVID-19 has continued to spread across the country, so it was long expected that many college football games would be postponed if not outright canceled over the course of the season. With many unknowns about the virus and its long-term effects, schools are taking every precaution necessary to make sure the student-athletes and staff are protected. As we enter Week 14 of the 2020 season, there have now been 118 games affected by COVID-19 with most postponements coming as a result of contact tracing protocols that require players to quarantine for 14 days if they are deemed to have been in high-risk contact with someone who has tested positive for the coronavirus.

Week 14 has already seen a big change. Georgia's home game vs. Vanderbilt on Saturday was canceled on Friday morning. Florida State will miss its third game in a row after its road trip to Duke was canceled. Duke will host Miami instead of the Seminoles. Plus, Northwestern's game against Minnesota was canceled because of ongoing issues in Minneapolis. And Michigan vs. Maryland has also been called off due to issues within the Wolverines' program. The week has already seen 15 games canceled or postponed across the country.

Some teams, such as Florida, Missouri, Houston, Memphis, Baylor, FAU, FIU, Virginia Tech, Arkansas State, Charlotte, Rice, Texas A&M, Arizona State, Miami and Wake Forest have already experienced multiple game disruptions. Even those who have not seen a game postponed yet are living day-by-day as COVID-19 test results and subsequent contact tracing dictate if -- and how effectively -- they will be able to play as scheduled.

Here is the full list of college football game postponements.
