EUGENE — Oregon’s home game against UCLA scheduled for Friday night but postponed on Thursday due to injuries to Bruins players unrelated to COVID protocols, is declared a forfeit by UCLA.

The Pac-12 announced the decision, which will count towards the conference standings but not the teams’ overall records by the NCAA, on Friday night.

The Pac-12′s updated game cancellation policy, part of the league’s basketball administration adjustments for the 2021-22 season, allows for a game to be rescheduled or declared a no-contest if a team has fewer than the minimum roster available (at least seven scholarship players and one countable coach). This policy is reserved for the unavailability of players and coaches due to COVID-19.

The game, which is the only scheduled meeting between the teams during the regular season, counts in the Pac-12 standings, but will be considered a no contest by the NCAA.

UCLA played eight players in its loss to Arizona on Wednesday, but leading scorer Charisma Osborne suffered an apparent non-contact knee injury, the severity of which wasn’t known immediately after the game.

Per NCAA policy, there will be no adjustment to overall records. The game will count in the Pac-12 standings, but will be considered a no contest by the NCAA in accordance with the following policy.

Oregon (12-5, 5-1 Pac-12) hosts USC on Sunday at 12 p.m.

The Bruins (9-5, 4-3) are still scheduled to play Oregon State on Sunday.
