Apple Cup Canceled

SEATTLE (AP) — The Apple Cup between Washington and Washington State scheduled for this week has been canceled due to the Cougars not having enough scholarship players available because of positive COVID-19 tests and contact tracing. The cancellation raises the possibility that the in-state rivals will not play for the first time since 1944, although both schools say they are hopeful to reschedule if an open date presents itself. There could be potential options for playing the rivalry matchup at the end of the season should neither team end up in the Pac-12 championship game.
