This pause is due to an increase in positive COVID-19 tests among UF football players. As of Wednesday, October 14, the UF vs LSU football originally scheduled for October 17 has been postponed and rescheduled tentatively for December 12. This is in response to the 21 COVID-19 positive players on the UF football team, according to the University Athletics website.
