The game that was to feature the Mountain West Conference football champion versus a team from the Pac-12 Conference now will not take place in 2020.

The inaugural LA Bowl announced on Monday that the 2020 game will not take place due to the pandemic.

The LA Bowl released a statement this morning after the news of the cancelation was announced.

“The inaugural LA Bowl has been postponed until 2021. While the COVID-19 pandemic has prevented us from having a game this year, we look forward to hosting teams from the Mountain West and Pac-12 conferences at SoFi Stadium next December.”

With the LA Bowl not going to happen this year, that brings the total to 11 bowl games this season that have been called off. This is the second involving a bowl with MWC tie ins.

Along with the two MWC tie in bowl games that have been canceled, the New Mexico Bowl was moved to Frisco, Texas for the 2020 game.
