But Utah officials revealed a combination of the team’s 17 confirmed COVID-19 cases and a resulting isolation of additional student-athletes due to contact tracing would mean the team would not have enough players available for the game.

The decision was made Friday and announced by the Pac-12 after Utah Director of Athletics Mark Harlan and UCLA Athletics Director Martin Jarmond communicated “throughout the week about the football program’s status”.
