Cal monitoring air quality for Friday’s game vs. Washington State

Cal officials are monitoring the air quality in the lead-up to Friday's game against No. 8 Washington State due to wildfires, a school spokesperson told Jon Wilner of The Mercury News.

The NCAA has guidelines about air quality for practices and competitions:

“Specifically, schools should consider removing sensitive athletes from outdoor practice or competition venues at an AQI over 100. At AQIs of over 150, all athletes should be closely monitored. All athletes should be removed from outdoor practice or competition venues at AQIs of 200 or above.”

The air quality on Wednesday in Berkely was measured at 187, according to Wilner.

As of now the game remains schedule for Friday night.
