Pac-12 statement on Washington State at Stanford football game
Nov 20, 2020
The Pac-12 today, Nov. 20, issued the following statement regarding the Washington State at Stanford football game, previously scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 21:
"The Pac-12 has, after consultation with Washington State University, cancelled the Washington State at Stanford football game scheduled for November 21. This decision was made under the Pac-12’s football game cancellation policy due to Washington State not having the minimum number of scholarship players available for the game as a result of a number of positive football student-athlete COVID-19 cases and resulting isolation of additional football student-athletes under contact tracing protocols. Under Conference policy, the game will be declared a no contest.
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."
