The season-opening football game between Southern Oregon University and Eastern Oregon has been postponed due to poor air quality, officials announced Tuesday evening, but SOU and EOU administrators will reevaluate later in the week to determine the potential for a Saturday morning game.

The game was originally scheduled for a 6 p.m. Thursday kickoff. Area wildfires, however, have ushered unhealthy conditions into the Rogue Valley.

A final decision on a potential Saturday matchup will be made Thursday by 5 p.m.
