SAN DIEGO (CNS) - San Diego State will play a football game against the Colorado Bulldogs on Saturday at Boulder, Colorado, in a replacement game for both schools, SDSU announced Thursday.
The Aztecs' originally scheduled game Friday at Fresno State was canceled earlier this week due to COVID-19 contact tracing within the Fresno State program. The Mountain West Conference declared the game a no contest, and has no plans to reschedule it, conference officials said Sunday.
On Thursday night, Colorado's scheduled game against USC at the Coliseum was canceled and declared a no-contest because USC did not have the minimum number of scholarship players available for the game at a specific position group as a result of a number of positive COVID-19 cases, and the resulting isolation of additional players under contact tracing protocols.
The Aztecs (3-2) are coming off a 26-21 loss at undefeated Nevada on Saturday. The team will resume Mountain West play against Colorado State on Dec. 5 at Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson.
