SAN DIEGO — The Holiday Bowl is the latest bowl to be canceled because of COVID-19, according to reports.

UCLA has announced that it will not be able to face NC State due to a lack of defensive linemen, as reported by Fox Sports on Tuesday afternoon. The game was scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. ET.

The Holiday Bowl was scheduled to be held at Petco Park.

Due to COVID-19 cases, the Holiday Bowl became the fifth bowl to be canceled. So far, the Arizona Bowl, Fenway Bowl, Hawaii Bowl, and Military Bowl have all been canceled, while the Gator Bowl and Sun Bowl have each had to replace teams that were unable to compete.
