Diamond Head game canceled due to Stanford COVID-19 issues | WGN 720 radio



HONOLULU (AP) The Diamond Head Classic championship game between Stanford and Vanderbilt was called off on Saturday due to COVID-19 concerns at Camp Cardinal.

In a tweet, the tournament said Stanford had health and safety protocols in its program and the game “will be declared without competition.” The Liberty-BYU game went on schedule on Saturday.

Stanford, who played Liberty on Wednesday night, said on its website that activities related to the team are on hiatus and “the status of future games” will be determined. His next scheduled game is Jan. 2 against Cal and then Jan. 6 against UCLA, which has also shut down the team’s activities due to COVID-19.

A day earlier, Hawaii had withdrawn from the tournament due to injuries and issues related to COVID-19. Coach Eran Ganot said in a statement that the program had not had a case for 21 months and that “the priority remains to protect our student-athletes as well as those against whom we compete.”

The Hawaii Bowl was canceled on Thursday due to COVID-19 concerns for the Hawaii football team.
