2 South Carolina football players test positive


COLUMBIA (AP) - South Carolina football coach Will Muschamp said two players have tested positive for COVID-19 while another nine are being held out because of possible contact with the infected players.

Muschamp gave the update Thursday night. The Gamecocks open the season at home Sept. 26 against No. 25 Tennessee.

Muschamp said those who came in contact with players who tested positive must sit out 10 days because of guidelines from the state of South Carolina. Muschamp said his players and staff have done a good job of wearing masks when out and staying socially distant from others.
