Washington out of Pac-12 Title Game due to CoVid concerns, Oregon to take place

San Francisco, CA. -- The Pac-12 Championship Football Game between Washington and USC will now be between Oregon and USC. The Huskies, in consultation with the Pac-12, pulled out of the matchup after positive Coronavirus cases and contact tracing left the team under the minimum 53 roster player threshold and under the position threshold at one particular position group. 

"The Pac-12 has, after consultation with Washington, made the decision to replace Washington with Oregon as the Pac-12 North Division team to face South Division champion USC in the Pac-12 Football Championship Game scheduled for Friday, December 18," said the conference in a statement. 

This decision was made under the Pac-12’s football game cancellation policy and Football Championship Game policy due to Washington neither having the minimum 53 scholarship student-athletes available for the game nor the minimum number of scholarship student-athletes at a position group, in each case as a result of a number of positive football student-athlete COVID-19 cases and resulting isolation of additional football student-athletes under contact tracing protocols.

Under Pac-12 Football Championship Game policy, the team with the next best record in the North Division, Oregon, will represent the North Division against South Division Champion USC."

Oregon and USC will meet on Friday, December 18th.
