SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — The Pac-12 game set for Saturday is canceled.

Pac-12 said Cal requested to cancel the Washington at Cal football game after a student player tested positive for coronavirus.

Cal did not have the minimum number of players available for the game because players were made to self-quarantine while contact tracing ensues. The game will be declared a no contest, Pac-12 said.

“The health and safety of our student-athletes and all those connected to Pac-12 football programs will continue to be our number one priority.”

Officials said the player who tested positive is asymptomatic.
