JSU season over after finale canceled due to COVID concerns
JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - Jackson State’s football season is over.
The team’s final scheduled contest with Prairie View A&M was canceled due to COVID-19 protocols and contact tracing within the JSU football program.
The game will not be made up.
After a hot start under first year head coach Deion Sanders, the Tigers dropped their last three games of the season to finish 3-3.
The team is also claiming a win over Alcorn State, which opted out of the 2021 season.
The Tigers will be back in action this fall; they will open the season on September 5 against Florida A&M in the Orange Blossom Classic in Miami.
