Saturday's Air Force-Army football game will not take place this weekend because of a COVID-19 outbreak, according to the Colorado Springs-Gazette's Brent Briggeman.

The Gazette had previously reported that as many as seven Falcons players were not expected to be available as a result of contract tracing protocols at Air Force. Per The Gazette, the number of players not expected to be available increased late Wednesday and early Thursday. The amount of positive COVID-19 tests is unclear. 

Army is 6-1 on the season while Air Force is just 1-2. The game was scheduled for an 11:30 a.m. ET kickoff on CBS.

It is unclear if the game will be made up.
