SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — The University of San Francisco Dons canceled their game Wednesday against the University of Southern California Trojans the day before the match after a USC player tested positive for COVID-19.
USF announced the cancellation Tuesday, but the possibility of a cancelation existed since Sunday, Dec. 13, when the USC player tested positive.
As a substitution, the Dons set up a game on Thursday against the Oregon Ducks. It will be the 11th time the Ducks and Dons have faced each other; Ducks are winning the series 8-2. The two teams have only played each other twice since 2007 and their last game was in 2013.
The Dons are currently 5-3. The Ducks are first place in PAC-12 and are 5-1.
The game is scheduled for 5 p.m. Thursday and will be televised on the Pac-12 Network.
After the positive COVID-19 test, USC canceled its next three scheduled games.
