Yet another Pac-12 game has been canceled.

Washington State will not travel to Stanford to play on Saturday night due to COVID-19 cases at Washington State. Reports emerged over the past 24 hours that a key player for Washington State would be unable to play on Sunday and there were enough positive tests and quarantines to prevent the Cougars from making the trip to Palo Alto.

The game is the second Pac-12 game of the weekend canceled. Colorado’s game against Arizona State was canceled on Sunday because of ongoing coronavirus cases at ASU.

Week 12 is the third week of the Pac-12’s season and the conference has had two games canceled in each of those three weeks. The game is also the 17th of Week 12 to get postponed or canceled.

The Pac-12 arranged a game between UCLA and Cal on short notice in Week 11 after their opponents were unable to play due to COVID-19. But Stanford said in a statement Friday afternoon that it didn’t expect to play an opponent over the weekend. Colorado is in need of an opponent too but the Buffs and Cardinal played each other in Week 11.
