Arizona Bowl Cancelled Due To COVID-19 Affecting Boise State Team
COVID-19 numbers are back on the rise, and with it, NFL, NBA, and college sports teams are seeing the available players fluctuate day to day and week to week. Multiple bowl games have been canceled already this year due to the increase in numbers and lack of players available to play. Some games have found replacement teams and been able to salvage games, while others are fully canceled, thus ending the season for the teams in those games.
Boise State Will Not Play In The Arizona Bowl
The Boise State Broncos were scheduled to play in the Barstool Sports Arizona Bowl on Friday, December 31 against Central Michigan, but the game will no longer be taking place as the Boise State team has had too many positive COVID-19 cases and will be unable to play in the game. Central Michigan, will still play against Washington State on Friday, but in the Sun Bowl in El Paso instead.
The Boise State Football Season Is Over
The Bronco's season is officially over now. They end the 2021 season with a 7-5 record and will look forward to the offseason as they begin to prepare for next season. For the seniors, it is heartbreaking that they won't get to take the field one more time and put on that Bronco jersey. For some, their careers are over while some will move on to expand their careers in the NFL or other leagues.
There will still be plenty of games to watch for those that enjoy college football bowl season, with both semi-final games and two other bowl games to be played on Friday, as of today. Games are still being canceled daily, as COVID-19 affects teams differently every day. Congratulations on a good season to the Boise State Broncos and can't wait until the 2022 season.
