The Irish defeated the South Florida Bulls 52-0 last Saturday, September 19th, the same day Wake Forest fell 45-42 to North Carolina State Wolfpack in Raleigh. This isn’t the first time Notre Dame has struggled with the novel coronavirus, and the team canceled practice earlier today due to the latest outbreaks.
As of this morning, no outbreaks have been reported amongst the USF Bulls, who held football practice as per usual and have yet to announce any positive tests.
“Combined with last week’s testing results, a total of 13 players are currently in isolation, with 10 in quarantine,” the statement reads.
Both schools do have an open date for October 3rd, but whether they’ll both be able to play that weekend isn’t known yet. Notre Dame was listed as a 17.5 point favorite on the road.
