The Pac-12 football season continues to be disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic. On Friday, Washington State’s game against Stanford was canceled due to an outbreak among the Cougars.
The Pac-12 announced the cancellation and cited a lack of available scholarship players on Washington State’s roster. Between positive cases and contact tracing, the Cougars were below the 53-man threshold set forth by the conference.
“The Pac-12 has, after consultation with Washington State University, cancelled the Washington State at Stanford football game scheduled for November 21,”
“The cancellation of this game is very disappointing to our student-athletes and our fans. While all of us want to see our football student-athletes on the field competing, our number one priority must continue to be the health and safety of all those connected to Pac-12 football programs.”
This marks the second Pac-12 game that has been cancelled this weekend. Arizona State vs. Colorado was called off back on Sunday due to a combination of positive cases and contact tracing within the Sun Devils’ program.
