Utah, Washington schedule Saturday football matchup

Oregon fails to finish off Oregon State as Playoff hopes vanish in rivalry loss

Utah is in the same boat as Washington.

The University of Utah is back on the football schedule for this upcoming weekend.

The Pac-12 announced the newly scheduled game Tuesday night, hours after Arizona State was forced to cancel its home matchup with the Utes.

"We will work with Pac-12 to prioritize this game and look into any opportunities to play it should there be an open date for both schools down the road", Cohen said.

"There was definitely some potential games that we were trying to get ahead of that we felt would replace the Apple Cup this weekend", Lake said. "We've missed Husky Nation this year at The Greatest Setting, but know they are fired up to watch the Dawgs play again on Saturday". UW was not originally scheduled to face the Utes this season.


Redshirt sophomore quarterback Cameron Rising - who won the job after a competition in fall camp - was lost for the season with a shoulder injury after just 14 plays.

Lake said his staff had already put in prep work on Washington State but that talk started to develop even before Washington's game last Saturday against Arizona that the Apple Cup could be facing a postponement. During his relief effort last week against USC, the Bentley completed 16 of 28 passes for 171 yards and a touchdown, but he threw two picks as well.

The Huskies, meanwhile, are 2-0 after toppling Arizona 44-27 at home last Saturday.

The Huskies have been riding out a roller coaster week that began with its rivalry game against Washington State getting postponed. Their season opener against Cal on November 7 was canceled after the Golden Bears could not meet the 53-player scholarship threshold due to one positive COVID-19 test and subsequent contact tracing.

San Diego State was a possible nonconference opponent as well. Given ASU's continued COVID-19 issues, the Utes were always Washington's most likely match. The Huskies' first game of the season at California was canceled.
