S.C. Gov.: Virus surge threatens college football season

The governor of South Carolina warned that a surge in COVID-19 infections could wipe out the college and high school football seasons in his state.”If these numbers continue to rise and the danger persists, I can’t do it. I won’t do it,” Gov. Henry McMaster said during a news conference Wednesday.”… That means this fall will not be like other falls,” he said. “We will not be able to have college football. We’ll not be able to have high school football.”High school games are scheduled to begin in late August. The University of South Carolina opens the season at home on Sept. 5 against Coastal Carolina. Clemson’s home opener is slated for Sept. 12 against Louisville.
