California-Arizona Football Game Cancelled

Dec 13, 2020

Pac-12 Statement Regarding California-Arizona Football Game

The Pac-12 has, after consultation with both Arizona and Cal, cancelled the Arizona at Cal football game scheduled for the weekend of Dec. 19. This decision was made under the Pac-12's football game cancellation policy due to both Arizona and Cal not having the minimum number of scholarship student-athletes available for the game. 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.

California Head Football Coach Justin Wilcox Statement

"Our heart goes out to all the student-athletes who put in so much preparation and time to play the game they love. We are disappointed that we are not able to host Arizona, but I am proud of our team and what we have been able to accomplish under difficult and unprecedented circumstances this season. Providing a safe environment has been at the top of our priority list throughout the season, and I'd like to thank everyone who helped us put together a plan to practice and play within health guidelines. I'd also like to recognize our seniors for their hard work, dedication and leadership throughout their Cal careers. They truly are a special group of student-athletes who have helped build our program. We have a bright future ahead of us, and we are looking forward to preparing for 2021."
