The Military Bowl and Fenway Bowl both will be canceled over COVID-19 concerns, multiple outlets said Sunday.

Boston College (6-6) was set to meet East Carolina (7-5) in the Military Bowl on Monday in Annapolis, Md.

Virginia (6-6) was scheduled to face SMU (8-4) in the inaugural Fenway Bowl at Boston’s Fenway Park on Wednesday.

They are the second and third bowl games to be canceled amid the pandemic’s current resurgence. Last Friday’s Hawaii Bowl between Memphis and Hawaii was called off Thursday when the Rainbow Warriors withdrew due to COVID-19 issues, injuries and transfers.

According to reports, the Fenway Bowl is being canceled due to COVID issues at Virginia. It was supposed to be the final game for outgoing Cavaliers head coach Bronco Mendenhall.

COVID issues at Boston College are forcing the cancellation of the Military Bowl, per reports.
