Today’s football game between Pierce and Bakersfield College has been canceled.

Athletic Director Susan Armenta said in an email that because they didn’t have enough eligible players, they would do a scrimmage instead.

 “Both team coaches agreed to continue with a scrimmage to provide an opportunity for the athletes to compete, as neither team was able to scrimmage in the pre-season,” Armenta wrote.

Pierce will instead open their season next Saturday at LA Harbor College. Kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m.
