USC football team latest to cancel its game

No. 19 Southern California’s scheduled home game against Colorado has been canceled, with the Buffaloes moving quickly to set up a replacement game against San Diego State in Boulder on Saturday.

The Pac-12 said USC didn’t have the minimum number of scholarship players available at a specific position group as a result of a number of positive COVID-19 cases and resulting isolation of additional players under contact tracing protocols.

San Diego State had an opening after its game at Fresno State was canceled.

USC and UCLA are the only teams in the Pac-12 South that played all of their first three games. Oregon and Oregon State also haven’t missed a game in the Pac-12 North.

Earlier this week, Utah and Washington decided to play Saturday. The game came together just hours after Utah’s game against Arizona State was canceled, leaving both the Utes and the Huskies without an opponent. Washington lost its game with Washington State.
