Trojans-Colorado game scratched due to COVID-19

The USC Trojans were scheduled to play the Colorado Buffaloes on Saturday, November 28 — but the game was cancelled because too many Trojan players were disqualified from participating due to positive tests for COVID-19.

Next up is Washington State at home, if the Trojans can scrape together enough healthy players.

Statement from USC Head Coach Clay Helton:

We are disappointed for our players and fans and those from Colorado that Saturday’s game will not be played, but the health and safety of everyone in both programs is of the utmost priority. Our players have worked hard since the summer not only to prepare for this season, but to do so in a safe manner by following all health protocols. I applaud their discipline and sacrifice in doing so. We will continue to test and monitor our players, coaches and staff and take guidance from health officials as we prepare for our remaining games.”
