PALO ALTO — The Wofford Terriers were set to take on the Stanford Cardinal for a Friday evening matchup from Maples Pavilion. Due to poor air quality throughout the Bay Area, the contest has been canceled. Stanford has announced that Friday’s game will not be rescheduled this season. 

California is experiencing one of the worst wildfire seasons on record. The largest fire which has caused the most destruction, resulted in the most casualties, and has generated most of the smoke that has been affecting the San Francisco Bay Area for close to a week now, is the Camp fire north of Sacramento. Medical experts have been indicating that the air quality in the Bay Area has been getting increasingly worse to the point that most local schools have closed. Stanford issued an announcement on Thursday evening that classes would be canceled on Friday and that students are recommended to stay indoors.

Wofford’s next game which will still be played against Oklahoma on Sunday in Norman, Oklahoma at 2:00 PM. 

Stanford will tipoff next in the Bahamas as a part of the Battle 4 Atlantis tournament. They will play Wisconsin on Wednesday, November 21 at 11:30 AM PT.
