Arizona State-Cal Game Canceled Due to ASU Positive COVID-19 Tests
As we’ve started many stories in 2020, COVID-19 continues to disrupt the sports world.
Arizona State does not have enough scholarship athletes to compete on Saturday against Cal. The game will be ruled a no contest.
Also, Sun Devils head coach Herm Edwards has tested positive for COVID-19 the school announced.
There’s a chance that Washington and Cal could play because of issues surrounding Oregon State, according to Bruce Feldman of FOX Sports. Washington was supposed to play Cal last week, but that was canceled due to positive tests from the Golden Bears.
There is also some concern around the Pac-12 now about Saturday’s Oregon State-Washington game as well on the Beavers side. I’m told there is talk inside the Pac-12 about Cal possibly playing Washington on Sunday. This Sunday.

However, Oregon State is still expecting to fly to Seattle and play the Huskies.
Oregon State football is still scheduled and planning to board a plane for Seattle at 6 p.m., per university source.
As of now, the Beavers appear to be planning to play vs. Washington tomorrow night.
Of course, this is 2020. Will update.

Back to ASU-Cal, the Pac-12 released a familiar statement to the two cancellation statements last week.
