SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – High School football took a big hit this week with many games canceled or moved to another date due to COVID-19 outbreaks.

Leading up to Week 8, the cancelations were minimal but this week was the most amount of games impacted by the pandemic than another other week this season and it’s not even close.

Deseret News Preps writer James Edwards counted 11 games canceled or moved while another game since his tweet has been canceled.

Games Canceled Or Moved

Here are the 13 games that have been canceled or moved due to the pandemic for Week 8 of the season.
