The University of South Florida football team is canceling next Saturday's game against Florida Atlantic due to coronavirus concerns.

The announcement comes just hours after USF called off on-field activities amid reports that some Notre Dame players tested positive for COVID-19.

USF was in South Bend over the weekend where they lost to Notre Dame 52-0.

The team was tested twice before the game on Friday and again on Monday, with each test producing all negative results, the school says.

However, out of an abundance of caution, the Bulls have decided to pause on-field activity until they have the results of further testing.
