Barstool Sports announced the cancellation of Friday’s Arizona Bowl in Tucson on Monday following Boise State’s withdrawal from the game after multiple players tested positive for COVID-19.
Monday began with hopes the annual college football event at Tucson’s Arizona Stadium would go on as planned with a game between the Boise State Broncos and Central Michigan Chippewas.
CMU players flew in on Sunday. The Broncos were set to arrive in Tucson on Tuesday. But the team later put out a bulletin saying it would withdraw from the bowl and had canceled team activities because the number of student-athletes who had tested positive exceeded the level that “that would allow for safe travel and safety of players.”
