EUGENE, Ore. -- The Pac-12 has its second game cancellation in as many days. 

The game on the conference's opening weekend between Utah and Arizona scheduled for Saturday in Salt Lake City has been cancelled following a request from Utah due to what the Pac-12 said were a number of Covid-19 cases among Utah players.

The Pac-12 game cancellation guidelines require teams to have at least 53 available scholarship players before a game is deemed no contest. That includes a position group number of at least seven offensive lineman, four defensive lineman and one quarterback. Utah fell under the available player threshold. 

This comes one day following the cancellation of the Washington-Cal game after one Cal player tested positive for the coronavirus and several other teammates were placed in quarantined as possible close contacts. 

Both games have been declared no contests.

"The cancellation of this game, following yesterday's cancellation of the Washington at Cal football game, is of course incredibly disappointing to our student-athletes and our fans," the Pac-12 said in a statement. "At the same time it is an indication that our health and safety protocols are working in identifying positive cases and contact tracing cases. While all of us want to see our football student-athletes on the field competing, our number one priority must continue to be the health and safety of all those connected to Pac-12 football programs."
