The Washington Huskies versus California Bears game that was scheduled for this Saturday, November 7th has been canceled due to the Covid-19 situation involving the Bears team.
Here is the statement released by Washington athletic director Jen Cohen:
“Our students, coaches and staff have put in incredible amount of hard work to get to this point and we are deeply disappointed they won’t have the opportunity to compete Saturday in Berkeley. I’m also disappointed for Husky Nation, they have been so patient and supportive, and we know they couldn’t wait to cheer on our Dawgs this weekend. With that said, the policies and protocols developed by the Pac-12, local and state officials placed the health and safety of students, coaches and staff at the forefront. We will now turn our attention to next week and start our preparations for Oregon State.”
The Pac-12 office released a statement:
The California Bears Athletics department released a statement as well:
Obviously a disappointing development for the entire Husky Football team as they were excited to play their first game of the season.
The start of the Jimmy Lake era on Montlake will have to wait at least another week.
