The Apple Cup game between Washington and Washington has been canceled.

The game was scheduled for Friday in Pullman.

The Pac-12 said the decision was made under the conference’s football policy because Washington State does not have the minimum number of scholarship players available for the game because of COVID-19.

“Our No. 1 priority must continue to be the health and safety of all those connected to Pac-12 football programs,” the Pac-12 said in a statement.
