SEATTLE, Wash. — The Washington at Oregon football game scheduled for Saturday has been cancelled as the Huskies deal with an influx of COVID cases among its athletes.

The PAC-12 made the announcement after consulting with UW on Thursday. In a statement, the conference said Washington does not have enough players due to positive cases and others in isolation.

“Under conference policy, the game will be declared a no contest,” the PAC-12 said.

On Thursday, UW paused all team-related activity due to an increase in positive COVID-19 tests.
