The West Tenn War Eagles won their sixth game of the season and first at Bethel College by forfeit over the Huntsville Hurricanes.
War Eagles general manager Ken Williams was notified Saturday that Huntsville would not make the trip.
West Tennessee head coach Trent Boykin said he was told at 1 p.m., three hours before the team would have arrived in McKenzie.
The War Eagles had lost consecutive games to the Arkansas Wildcats and Arkansas Pirates.
They are scheduled to play the Memphis Blast at 7 p.m. next Saturday at Melrose Stadium in Memphis.
The Aug. 14 game — the final regular season contest — against the Mississippi Raiders is set to be played at Bethel, but Boykin said the game may take place in Memphis because of travel distance.
The playoffs begin Aug. 28.
The War Eagles are now 6-2 on the season.
