PULLMAN, Wash. - Washington State's game against Cal has been canceled merely hours before kickoff on Saturday.
The Pac-12 announced in a statement the cancellation as a result of Cal not meeting the minimum number of scholarship players due to a player testing positive for coronavirus. The test was confirmed using a PCR test. Under contact tracing protocols, the positive player and additional student-athletes will be in isolation.
The game was scheduled for 1 p.m. PT and to be aired on Q13. Under conference policy, officials say the game is declared a no contest.
"The cancelation 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," Pac-12 officials said in a statement.
