The game was set to take place in Lawrence, Kansas, but the Jayhawks said they could not host because of coronavirus issues within their program.
“We have been working with University of Colorado and local public health officials to monitor the situation closely,” Kansas athletics director Jeff Long said in a statement. “Unfortunately, the increase in positive COVID-19 cases within our football program this week prevents us from playing Saturday’s game.”
The Jayhawks have had at least 28 positive coronavirus tests since Oct. 24, according to data obtained Wednesday by USA TODAY Sports.

A snowstorm hit the area and made travel conditions dangerous

The game between the Kansas Jayhawks and the Colorado Buffaloes was set to take place on Saturday, November 28th, but it was ultimately cancelled due to a winter storm that swept through the area. The storm hit Boulder, Colorado on Friday and made travel conditions dangerous.

The Jayhawks were set to fly out on Friday afternoon, but their flight was cancelled. They eventually arrived in Boulder early Saturday morning, but the game had already been cancelled.

The cancellation of the game was a disappointment for both teams and their fans. It also had implications for the College Football Playoff rankings, as Kansas was ranked No. 6 at the time and Colorado was ranked No. 15.

The game was cancelled due to the weather conditions

The game was cancelled due to the weather conditions. Heavy snow and strong winds made it unsafe for the players and fans to be outside.

Some fans were upset because they had already made travel plans

The game was originally supposed to be played in Boulder, but because of the Covid-19 pandemic, it was moved to Lawrence, Kansas. The game was then cancelled because of positive Covid-19 tests within the Colorado program.

Other fans were happy because they didn’t want to travel in the snow

The game was set to be played in Boulder, Colorado, but with a winter storm bearing down on the area, it became clear that travel conditions would be too dangerous for fans. The game was cancelled for the safety of those who would have had to travel in the storm.
