Even better: Cal to play UCLA on Sunday

Apparently it is Arizona State’s turn to cancel a game due to COVID-19. UCLA also is without its scheduled opponent, Utah, which had to cancel. There is hope that each school will be able to fill in the opening with a game against each other on Sunday. Because of the shortened season, Cal was not scheduled to play either USC or UCLA, which had not happened since 1933. The interstate rivalries between Cal, Stanford, USC and UCLA really matter to the fans of these schools, and many travel to Northern or Southern California, as the case may be, to see the scheduled away game between the northern and southern rivals. So, getting to play at least one of the two Southern California schools is an improvement as far as I’m concerned.
