University of Oklahoma head football coach Lincoln Riley announced Saturday that nine of his players tested positive for coronavirus. The results came back after the team returned from a one-week break from preseason practices….

 

"We did conduct a Covid test as planned with our players last night, got the results this morning we had nine players tested positive for Covid. We had a couple of other that have been isolated due to contract tracing," Riley told the media in a video conference call on Saturday. "Disappointed by the news. We've done such a tremendous job this entire time. You know when (you) give players time, there is risk in that. This isn't the NBA, we don't have a bubble. We all have to continue to work to do a better job by all accounts. We're still confident in the plan that we have."

 

The Oklahoma Sooners are part of the Big 12 Conference, which this week said it intends to move forward with a fall football season.

 

Oklahoma is currently scheduled to open the 2020 season at home against Missouri State on September 12.
