Colorado State’s game against UNLV will not be played Saturday due to positive COVID-19 tests

Colorado State may have lost a second Mountain West game to COVID-19 this week, with the conference announcing Wednesday that the game of the Rams against UNLV will not be played on Saturday.

Positive coronavirus tests and the resulting contact tracking prevented the UNLV football team from traveling, according to a release from Mountain West. The Rams had previously canceled a match with New Mexico in October due to concerns about the coronavirus.

The CU Buffs had also canceled their weekend meeting with Arizona State earlier this week. The San Jose Mercury News reported that the Pac-12 is trying to enable teams to schedule games against non-conference opponents as a substitute. That could open the door for a renewal of the Rocky Mountain Showdown.
