Another Friday brought another football cancellation for the Pac-12 conference due to COVID-19 issues.

This time, it was the Washington State-Stanford game, scheduled for Saturday, as the Cougars’ program did not have the required number of 53 scholarship players available to play in the contest.

The Pac-12 made the announcement Friday night, and the game is declared a no-contest. It is the second canceled Pac-12 game this week — the Arizona State-Colorado game is also off, with the Sun Devils dealing with a spread of COVID-19 in their program.

That makes six league games canceled due to COVID-19 issues since the Pac-12 started its season three weeks ago.

The conference’s other four games this weekend — No. 20 USC at Utah, UCLA at No. 11 Oregon, California at Oregon State and Arizona at Washington — are still a go.

If the Utes play the Trojans, it will be their season-opener after having their first two games canceled due to COVID-19.
