Pac-12 allows flexibilit­y to reschedule games


The Pac-12 Conference has approved a plan to allow member schools to schedule nonconfere­nce football opponents subject to certain conditions if games are canceled.

The conference has had five of its 18 scheduled games during the first three weeks canceled amid COVID-19 issues. California and UCLA were able to schedule a game against each other last weekend on 45 hours’ notice after Cal’s game against Arizona State and UCLA’s matchup against Utah were canceled due to the Sun Devils and Utes having several positive COVID-19 tests.

Colorado was slated to host Arizona State on Saturday but that game was called off earlier this week.

The conference’s new scheduling plan could give the Buffaloes the possibilit­y of facing Colorado State or Wyoming if the Mountain West Conference doesn’t schedule a rematch between the two schools.
