As we’ve said with the other cancellations, this game will be scored a no contest.
Utah will now be two weeks into the Pac-12 season with no games played due to COVID-19 cases.
From Utah: With an additional positive result today there are currently 17 confirmed positive cases among Utah football players, coaches and staff and an additional 11 members of the program are now in quarantine due to contact tracing protocols.

Cal missed last week due to their own positive tests, and now Arizona State’s COVID outbreak is causing them to miss their second. However, there’s a chance UCLA and Cal could agree to play, then that Cal note would change.
Expecting #OregonState–#Washington to be a go, per sources. Key now is whether #Cal and #UCLA work out an agreement to play this weekend. Would be Cal’s first game, UCLA’s second.

Still a lot left up in the air regarding the Pac-12 this week. This is peak 2020.
