Like a quarterback audibilizing as the clock ticks down, the Pac-12 conference called in Cal to substitute for the University of Utah to face the Bruins as UCLA’s first Rose Bowl home game opponent of the season on Sunday.

The home opener had already previously been rescheduled from Friday to Saturday last weekend after a Utah player tested positive for COVID-19, but in the end the Utes just couldn’t field a healthy team.

Sunday’s 9 a.m. game will be televised on Fox Sports 1.

Additionally, the UCLA at Oregon game, which had been scheduled for Friday, Nov. 20, will move to Saturday, Nov. 21 at a time to be announced.

UCLA Director of Athletics Martin Jarmond said that he wanted “to commend our football student-athletes on their flexibility and focus in the midst of a lot of uncertainty.”

“It’s an unconventional solution in an unconventional year and we’re excited to host the Bears at the Rose Bowl on Sunday.”
