The Bears' game against Arizona State was canceled Friday because of COVID-19 positives at Arizona State.

Cal opens its season after its November 7 opener against Washington was canceled because one of its defensive linemen tested positive for COVID-19 and most in the position group were quarantined after contact tracing.

UCLA played its opener, a 48-42 loss at Colorado in which the Bruins tallied 478 yards of total offense, but yielded 525 and allowed the Buffaloes to run 92 plays. "In every case we continue to consider the health, safety and welfare of our student-athletes as our number one priority". Later on Friday, the conference announced the cancellation of the Utah-UCLA game for similar reasons.

The cancellation is the 13th game of the weekend that won't be played as scheduled because of COVID-19.

Utah coach Kyle Whittingham had said earlier this week that the Utes were teetering on the edge of not having enough players available.

Kelly went on to say that breaking down game film of last season's Utah team can be beneficial, but only to a point, in all fairness.

According to NCAA.com, 15 of the 49 football games that were scheduled to kick off Saturday were either postponed or canceled due to Covid-19 issues. "This has certainly been an emotional rollercoaster for those in our program, particularly our student-athletes, but we need to remain as diligent as ever and proceed within federal, state and local protocols".

"We have known since the pandemic began that this season would be different from any other", Cal coach Justin Wilcox said. Cal's season-opening contest against Washington was also canceled after a Bears player tested positive three days before the game. The Cal at UCLA game will air on Fox Sports 1. "As I've told our team many times, the one thing we have learned is to expect the unexpected". The Pac-12 was the last conference to start the 2020 football season and its six-game regular-season schedule is the shortest of any major conference. The Bruins and Ducks will now face off on Saturday, Nov. 21 and the game will be televised by an ESPN network at a time to be announced.
