    Hawaii wide receiver JoJo Ward (9) celebrates with wide receiver Jared Smart (23) and wide receiver Cedric Byrd II (6) after his touchdown against the San Jose State Spartans during the first half of a college football game in 2019 at Aloha Stadium.

No decision was made today on where — or if — Saturday’s football game between Hawaii and San Jose State will be played.

The scheduled game at CEFCU Stadium in San Jose is in jeopardy because of new quarantine rules that will be imposed for Santa Clara County beginning today. Health officials are prohibiting contact sports in practices and games for the next two weeks in the Bay Area county. The order also calls for incoming travelers from at least 150 miles outside the county to quarantine for 14 days.

San Jose State officials met with Santa Clara County health officials today. SJSU officials shared more than four months of COVID-19 protocols and test results. The New York Times had reported that SJSU’s 22 sports programs had seven positive test results — each asymptomatic — since late July.

“We are in a fluid situation with our football and basketball teams since their seasons are in progress,” SJSU athletic director Marie Tuite wrote in a statement distributed to the media. “We will make decisions on team practices and when and where our contests are being played in conjunction with university administration and the Mountain West.”

UH is a football-only member of the Mountain West. UH’s basketball teams compete in the Big West.
