Southern Cal player positive for COVID-19 after Utah game
A Southern California player who traveled with the Trojans to Utah over the weekend has tested positive for COVID-19.
In a statement issued Tuesday, the school said the unidentified player tested negative three times within 36 hours of the team’s departure for Utah and again on game day. He is symptomatic and in quarantine. He was not with the team on Sunday or Monday.
All other tests conducted Monday came back negative, the school said.
The Pac-12 has had at least one game canceled each week since its return to play on Nov. 7.
No. 19 USC (3-0, 3-0 Pac-12) is scheduled to host Colorado (2-0, 2-0) on Saturday. The Buffaloes didn’t play last week; their game with Arizona State was canceled because of a COVID-19 outbreak in the Sun Devils’ program.
