SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The Pac-12 announced that the Arizona State game against Utah has been canceled due to COVID-19.

The Utes were scheduled to play the Sun Devils in Tempe on Sunday, November 29.

It’s the third straight week that Arizona State had to cancel their football game. They have played one game this season and that was on November 7 against USC.

The Pac-12 released the following statement on Tuesday afternoon.

According to head coach Kyle Whittingham, the team was planning on either Arizona State or Washington.

“I understand that it will be on the road, regardless of who we play. At ASU or at U Dub,” said Whittingham on Tuesday morning. “So looks like the possibility of a home game doesn’t exist for this week.  Washington would be on Saturday, whereas the ASU game would be on Sunday. That is my understanding.”

Going into today’s practice, Utah was all in on preparation for the Sun Devils.

“All the focus right now is on ASU until we’re told differently,” stated Whittingham. “That’s where we’re gonna put the majority of our attention. I say the majority doesn’t still gotta pay attention to the other possibility. But that’s where our primary focus is. We hope to find out sooner rather than later and would be ideal if we could find out today (Tuesday). As the week moves on, it becomes more of a difficult situation, not having some clarity. But we have no control over that. As far as I’m told. We’re just waiting for a definitive answer.”
