The Atlantic Coast and Pac-12 conferences are changing rescheduling policy to avoid assigning automatic forfeits for teams unable to play due to COVID-19 protocols.

The decisions come amid the rise in COVID-19 cases and cancellations or postponements nationally.

Games that cannot be played will be rescheduled if possible.

If those games can't be rescheduled, they will be considered a "no contest" that doesn't affect a team's record.

In football, No. 23 Texas A&M won't play in the Gator Bowl against No. 20 Wake Forest due to a combination of injuries and COVID-19 concerns.
