ASU football game versus Utah moved a day back to Nov. 29

The schedule change will extend the team's absence from competition to at least 21 days

ASU football's game against Utah, which was originally scheduled on Saturday, Nov. 28, has been moved to the following day on Sunday, Nov. 29.

Kick-off time and broadcast information have yet to be announced.

ASU canceled the past two games on its 2020 schedule due to a COVID-19 outbreak within the program following the first week of the Pac-12 season. 

ASU's game scheduled for Nov. 14 against Cal, the slated home opener of the season for the team, was canceled in the lead up to the game. This was after the Sun Devils had canceled practice earlier in the week. 

ASU's game against Colorado, originally scheduled on Nov. 21, was called off shortly thereafter.

The Sun Devils had an unknown number of players test positive earlier in the month but enough to prevent them from meeting the Pac-12's minimum number of scholarship players available to field a team. 

The Pac-12 has since made scheduling adjustments for teams, allowing a program to schedule a non-conference matchup if their would-be conference opponent is unable to play due to a COVID-19-related reasons.

The game against Utah, assuming it is also not canceled, will be ASU's second game of a maximum of four remaining playable games this season. ASU's only contest this season thus far was a 28-27 loss against USC.
