Texas A&M AD Ross Bjork shares update on Aggies after positive tests at Florida
Florida became the latest program to have shut down all football activities due to multiple COVID-19 testing results.
In UF’s announcement, athletic Scott Stricklin shared that he had been in touch with officials at Texas A&M, Florida’s previous opponent, and LSU, Florida’s Week 4 opponent.
Tuesday afternoon, Texas A&M athletic director Ross Bjork issued a statement to media outlets saying that, at this time, the Aggies have not been impacted by the cases on the Florida football team:
“We have been in touch with officials at the University of Florida and have also reviewed the available data from the Kinexon contact tracing system deployed by the SEC. At this point, there has been no impact within our football program, but we will continue our regular testing regiment this week and stay diligent with all of our safety protocols.”
Texas A&M is scheduled to play at Mississippi State on Saturday. Kickoff is set for 3 p.m. CT, airing on the SEC Network.
