The ASU-Colorado football game slated for November 21 has been canceled, ASU athletic director Ray Anderson said in a statement.
The Sun Devils had to cancel their matchup against Cal last Saturday due to positive tests throughout the football program, including head coach Herm Edwards.
“As we announced Friday for our contest against Cal, the number of positive cases in the last few days has put our team below the Pac-12’s minimum threshold of 53 available scholarship student-athletes under the league’s game cancellation policy,” Anderson said. “Unfortunately we are in the same situation for this week’s scheduled game with CU. We have consulted with the Conference and Colorado officials and have decided to make this prompt announcement so alternative scheduling options can be considered in the overall interests of the Conference and our peer student-athletes and coaches.
Cal was able to reschedule a game with UCLA this week and played the rare Sunday matchup at the Rose Bowl. The Bruins beat the Bears 34-10.
The next game on the Sun Devils’ schedule is a November 28 matchup against Utah in Tempe.
