Washington pauses football activities due to increase in COVID-19 cases


Washington has paused football activities after a rise in positive COVID-19 cases within the Huskies’ program, putting in doubt the fate of its game this Saturday against Oregon.

Washington did not reveal the number of cases but said it would not practice Wednesday while undergoing additional PCR testing.

The school said it would announce the status of the Oregon game when more information becomes available. Should the game be played, the winner of the Washington-Oregon matchup will be Pac-12 North champions and play in the conference title game on Dec. 18.
