The Texas Longhorns football team canceled practice Sunday after three players and two staff members tested positive for COVID-19.


The positive test results prevent the Longhorns from practicing on Monday, with players being retested Tuesday. The only other time players tested positive for COVID-19 was before the start of the season in the summer.

The team said in a statement that all players tested negative Friday before traveling to Manhattan, Kansas this past weekend. According to Big XII protocols, the Longhorns have to test for the coronavirus at least three times per week.

Just last month, volleyball player Morgan O'Brien tested positive for the virus, being the only other University of Texas athlete to contract the virus during an ongoing season.

The Longhorns football team won their game against Kansas State 69-31, putting them on track to take on the 0-9 Kansas Jayhawks this weekend in Lawerence, Kansas. The game was originally scheduled earlier in the season, but had to be postponed after Kansas did not meet the requirements for players at certain positions.
