The Latest: Utah players opt out of potential bowl game

By The Associated Press

The Latest on the effects of the coronavirus outbreak on sports around the world:

___

Utah’s game Saturday against Washington State will wrap up the Utes’ season.

The school said Friday the players have decided to opt out of any potential bowl game. The Utes would become bowl eligible with a victory over the Cougars.

Coach Kyle Whittingham says he supports the players’ decision.

Utah (2-2) has won its last two games, including a 38-21 victory at Colorado last Saturday.

___

Iowa football coach Kirk Ferentz has tested positive for COVID-19. The school says the 65-year-old does not have symptoms and will remain at home in isolation until Dec. 27.

Iowa’s game this weekend with Michigan already had been postponed because of the lingering effects of the Wolverines’ outbreak.

Ferentz is the 23rd FBS coach to reveal publicly that he tested positive for the virus. Others include Alabama’s Nick Saban and Ohio State’s Ryan Day, both missing games.
