We’ve got a complete list of games that have been canceled, postponed or rescheduled because of Covid-19 for Week 15 of college football.

Update Dec. 11 7:35 p.m.: Utah State players have decided not to participate in their last game of the season against Colorado State after the players have voted to sit out and not play.

Update Dec. 11 4:10 a.m.: Washington vs. Oregon is now canceled, and if two more Pac-12 games now get canceled this weekend, due to the convoluted rules created by the conference no team from the North Division would make the title game. USC would play Colorado instead despite that the Trojans and Buffaloes are in the same South Division. They didn’t play during the regular season due to Covid-19.

Update Dec. 10 11:15 p.m.: Miami-Ohio and Bowling Green are off as well. Bowling Green ends the season at 0-5 with a 225-57 point differential. Maybe this was for the best.

Update Dec. 10 9:15 a.m.: The Old Oaken Bucket between Indiana and Purdue is off as well.

Update Dec. 9 9:55 a.m.: Marshall vs. Charlotte is off. Though they’ll finish the season at 4-1 in the league and FAU will be 5-1 with a win over Southern Miss on Thursday night, The Herd have the head-to-head tiebreaker over the Owls and will win the East Division.

Update Dec. 9 9:25 a.m.: Michigan vs. Ohio State has been canceled, and there are bigger implications for the Big Ten Championship because of it.


As of now, there are two FBS college football games scheduled for the weekend of Saturday, December 12th that have been rescheduled, canceled or postponed.

As games are added, including some that will have an impact on the College Football Playoff race, we’ll add them to the spreadsheet below.

Remember that bowl games in 2020 are free to take any team they wish regardless of record, so these games won’t matter for postseason eligibility. Also there is only one more eligible week to play, and that coincides with Championship Weekend and the 10 games being played by the FBS conferences.

Here is how we define each game in our list below:

Rescheduled: A new date and time has been announced.

Postponed: The game will not be played, and a new date and time has not been announced. We also add “unlikely” for games that don’t appear to have room to be played on current schedules, but where an official announcement hasn’t been made that the game won’t occur.

Canceled: The game will not be played at any point this season.
