Another ACC football team won’t play in its 2021 bowl game due to COVID-19 concerns: Miami pulled out of the 2021 Sun Bowl.
The Hurricanes were scheduled to play Washington State, which arrived in El Paso for the game on Sunday. The Sun Bowl is/was scheduled to take place on Friday, Dec. 31.
Miami has to withdraw from Sun Bowl because of COVID issues, bowl sources told @ActionNetworkHQ. It’s unknown if Sun Bowl can find a replacement to play Washington State, which arrived in El Paso earlier today

Obviously, this became an emerging concern last week; as cases of COVID-19 surged across the world, multiple Miami players tested positive for the virus.
