In what is for sure the most insane scheduling move of the 2020 season so far, the Cal Golden Bears will now play the UCLA Bruins in a Pac-12 matchup on Sunday because the original opponents for both teams weren’t available due to Covid-19.

These two teams, which have in no way practiced or prepared for each other, are going to compete in a game of college football that counts at 9 a.m. local time on a Sunday.
If there’s a more sports in 2020 sentence than the one above, I dare you to create it.
Cal was originally going to play the Arizona State Sun Devils, and UCLA was booked for the Utah Utes. But why do that when you can just throw out all your game planning and practice, and lineup across the field from each other like it’s a pickup flag football game in the park?
This is a disgrace. We’ll have a line posted as soon as we see one from DraftKings Sportsbook.
