San Jose State’s matchup with Boise State has been canceled due to positive COVID-19 cases and contact tracing within the Boise State program, the Mountain West announced this morning.
The game will be declared a no contest and there are no plans to reschedule.
“We arrived in Boise on Friday and learned this news Saturday morning,” said San Jose State Athletics Director Marie Tuite. “Our players and coaches were looking forward to this game with great anticipation. It is a big disappointment to everyone that we are not able to play this game.”
The Spartans (4-0) were in position to play their highest-profile game in years this afternoon against Boise State (4-1 overall, 4-0 Mountain West). It would have been SJSU’s first game on a major over-the-air network (FOX) since 2006, with a shot at its first 5-0 start in 65 years.
The winner of Saturday’s game would have remained in position to reach the Mountain West championship game Dec. 19, as both teams are undefeated in conference play. The Mountain West’s top two teams by win percentage in conference games will face off in that game. Nevada currently sits atop the Mountain West at 5-0.
