The University of Arizona’s football season has come to an end.

The Wildcats’ final conference game against Cal has been canceled due to coronavirus concerns, the Pac-12 announced Sunday.

According to the conference’s statement, neither team had the minimum number of scholarship players available to play.

This is the second canceled game for Arizona this season after its season opener against Utah was called off.

The week’s Pac-12 slate of games was announced Sunday morning, but Arizona-Cal was not given a kickoff time, as the game was already in jeopardy.

Cal’s game against Washington State that had been scheduled for last Saturday was canceled after a Golden Bears player tested positive for coronavirus.

Arizona, 0-5 and losers of 12 straight games, fired head coach Kevin Sumlin on Saturday following its Territorial Cup loss to ASU.
