Vandal football has season opening game canceled

The University of Idaho football team’s regular season opener against Western Oregon has been canceled.

The Great Northwest Athletic Conference announced Friday that all member institutions will suspend athletic competition through November 30th.

Idaho’s game at Washington State, originally scheduled for September 19th in Pullman, was canceled earlier this month when the Pac-12 announced it was moving to a conference-only schedule for 2020.

Scheduling alternatives for both games are currently being discussed.

The Vandals are now tentatively set to open the season on the road at Temple on September 12th.
