Miami Football Unable to Participate in 2021 Tony the Tiger Sun Bowl

CORAL GABLES, Fla. – Miami Athletics announced Sunday that its
football team will be unable to participate in the 2021 Tony the Tiger
Sun Bowl against Washington State due to COVID-19 protocols.

“We are extremely disappointed that our football team will be unable
to participate in the 2021 Tony the Tiger Sun Bowl,” Deputy Director
of Athletics/Chief Operating Officer Jennifer Strawley said. “But due
to the number of COVID-19 cases impacting our roster we do not have
enough student-athletes to safely compete, and the health and safety
of our student-athletes will always be our top priority. This team
worked hard all season to earn a bowl invitation and my heart goes out
to our student-athletes, especially our seniors. I also want to thank
Interim Head Coach Jess Simpson and our football staff for all of
their efforts in preparation for this bowl game.

“We regret the impact this has on the Washington State program and
their postseason experience. I want to commend the Sun Bowl
Association for their tireless work in helping us navigate this
situation over the past several days. We are grateful for their
support as an Atlantic Coast Conference bowl partner.”
