Florida Pauses Football Activities Because of COVID-19 Cases Among Players


No. 10 Florida says it’s pausing all football team activities following “an increase in positive COVID tests among players.”

Athletic director Scott Stricklin says the decision was made “out of an abundance of caution.”

Stricklin says coach Dan Mullen has had conversations with players and their parents and adds that he has spoken with last week’s opponent, Texas A&M, and Saturday’s opponent, defending national champion LSU.

Stricklin says the situation “will be re-evaluated by UF Health and the athletic department’s sports medicine staff Wednesday.”
