The University of Miami has pulled out of the Sun Bowl against Washington State due to COVID-19 issues.

The University issued a statement on Sunday regarding becoming the third ACC to drop out of a bowl game.

“We are extremely disappointed that our football team will be unable to participate in the 2021 Tony the Tiger Sun Bowl,” Miami deputy athletics director/chief operating officer Jennifer Strawley said in a statement. “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.”

Washington State is now searching for a replacement team to fill Miami’s spot.
