Carl was originally scheduled to play at Arizona State University, while UCLA is scheduled to host Utah. These games were cancelled due to positive cases of COVID-19 and related contact tracking in Arizona and Utah.
UCLA Sports Director Martin Jamond said in a statement: “First of all, I want to commend our football student-athletes for their flexibility and focus in a lot of uncertainty.”
