The Oct. 17 football game against West Texas A&M has been canceled, with hopes to either reschedule or play another team later on.

“We knew we might have a few challenges when we decided to play this fall,” said President Phil Schubert. “With some of our student-athletes testing positive for COVID-19, we know it’s in everyone’s best interest.”

This week's message salutes all of our area graduates! Graduation is always a momentous time in life…we know many of the places you’d go to get that perfect graduation photo aren’t available right now. For the next week this marquee will stay up. Friday, we will turn the marquee lights on from NOON to 10PM for you to take photos. Pictures in front of the marquee look especially good late afternoon and evening, when the sun is behind the Wooten! (Please be respectful of others when taking pictures, mind your social distancing, and watch for cars, please!)

Hey y'all! This is my first year at ACU and I'm from south Houston. One of my friends back home is doing this fundraiser to help support families who were effected by the storm. I was lucky enough to only have my garage flooded but I have many friends around the corner who were evacuated by helicopter and boats due to high flooding in their houses. Even if you can't buy a shirt or even donate, please share so we can help Houston from Abilene God Bless Sara
A friend flew over Abilene today - nice picture of most of the campus from the east, including the new football stadium (Thanks Bobbie Ann). #GoWildcats!
