Oregon State’s December 12th matchup against the Stanford Cardinal has been moved from Stanford to Corvallis. Last week, Santa Clara County elected to ban all contact sports, necessitating much shuffling in the schedules of several leagues. With COVID-19 infections sky rocketing nation wide, and California and the Bay Area in particular suffering, the move is not surprising.
The Beavers are one of the only Pac-12 teams to have so far not had to cancel any games this season, though they have come close at times. Today’s announcement gives the Beavers an extra home game on this year’s short schedule, but with no crowd at Reser home field advantage doesn’t mean as much.
The Beavers are on a two game winning streak, having taken down Cal and Oregon in back to back home games. This weekend, they’ll have their second and final road game of the season, when they travel to Utah to take on an 0-2 Utes team. Utah had their first two games of the season, a home game against Arizona and a road game at UCLA, cancelled. They also had last week’s game against Arizona State cancelled, but the Pac-12 managed to schedule a game against Washington to replace it. The Utes lost to the Huskies 24-21 in that matchup.
