Louisville's football game against Virginia on Saturday has been postponed.
The Cardinals, who missed nine players in last week's game against Virginia Tech due to coronavirus-related issues, will not play the Cavaliers this weekend. Instead, the game will be moved to Nov. 14, replacing the Cardinals' originally scheduled bye week.
While nine players missed last week's game — eight on the defensive side of the ball — Louisville still played against Virginia Tech. Those numbers have grown since Saturday's game.
Louisville athletic director Vince Tyra said the football program is dealing with 15 COVID-19 cases with seven more people in quarantine, for 22 virus-related issues in total. Ten players have COVID-19, with five more in quarantine. The team's support staff has had five positive tests, with two more in quarantine. No members of the coaching staff tested positive or are quarantined, Tyra said.
Because of those growing cases, the program has also paused all team activities for now. Tyra said everyone who has tested positive has mild symptoms, and no one is seriously ill.
