COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - The BYU at San Diego State football game, scheduled for 6:30 p.m. PT, this Saturday, October 27, at Qualcomm Stadium, has been postponed until Saturday, December 1, 2007. Kick time and telecast details will be announced at a later date.

Qualcomm Stadium availability
Displacement of evacuees
"There is a far greater priority than sporting events in the San Diego area at this time," MWC Commissioner Craig Thompson said Tuesday. "The focus should be on emergency response and resources, and getting the community back on its feet. Our thoughts are with our colleagues at San Diego State University, as well as everyone who has been affected by this disaster."
