And Utah has played just one game (last Saturday vs USC) due to COVID. Their season opener against Cal on November 7 was canceled after the Golden Bears could not meet the 53-player scholarship threshold due to one positive COVID-19 test and subsequent contact tracing.
WSU already had its scheduled game for last Saturday with Stanford called off for the same reason.
The post Utah and Washington schedule new game that will be on ESPN appeared first on Awful Announcing.
Washington is 2-0 so far this season following wins over Oregon State, 27-21, and Arizona, 44-27.
Washington was supposed to play Washington State on Friday night in Spokane, but that was canceled due to a COVID outbreak at Washington State.
The Sun Devils didn't meet the minimum number of scholarship players available for the game, according to the conference. We've had some great battles with Utah the last few years and I'm looking forward to welcoming them to Seattle this weekend. Given ASU's continued COVID-19 issues, the Utes were always Washington's most likely match.
