An announcement from the Colonial Athletic Association said the decision was made because of "COVID-19 related protocols within the New Hampshire program."A decision on rescheduling the game will be made at a later date.
UNH spokesman Mike Murphy told Seacoast Current he could not disclose details citing Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) regulations. The team also canceled a scheduled weekly press conference.
According to the UNH COVID-19 dashboard covering all three campuses in Concord, Durham and Manchester there was a spike in positive test results from zero on Sunday and three on Monday to 25 on Tuesday. There are currently 102 active cases mostly among students on the Durham campus.
