Saturday’s football game between Hawaii and San Jose State will be played at Aloha Stadium, according to a tweet from the UH football program.
The game initially was going to be played at CEFCU Stadium in San Jose, Calif.
But new coronavirus-related restrictions forced San Jose State to seek a new location. Santa Clara County imposed a rule that will not allow sports-related activities, such as practices and games, for the next three weeks.
It appeared the game would not be played in Hawaii because the ruling also requires travelers from outside a 150-mile radius to quarantine for 14 days.
But both schools apparently reached an agreement to move the game to Aloha Stadium.
“We explored many venue and date options for this game over the last 48 hours,” San Jose State athletic director Marie Tuite said in a news release. “Moving the game from San Jose to Honolulu became the best option based on our county and the state’s current public health directives. We want to thank many people who were involved in the decision-making process and there were many – our university administration, the Mountain West office and the conference schools that offered their support.”
A kick-off time has not be set.
