A day after the Clemson Tigers announced 23 of their football players tested positive for COVID-19 , 30 LSU Tigers football players are now in quarantine following an outbreak within the program.

On Saturday, Sports Illustrated’s Ross Dellenger reported the LSU Tigers placed 30 players into quarantine following an outbreak of the coronavirus on campus. Now, per The Athletic’s Brody Miller, LSU has more than a dozen positive cases of COVID-19.

According to the report, the outbreak has partially been traced to Tigerland bars in Baton Rouge. Louisiana’s Department of Health reported more than 100 people at the bars tested positive for the coronavirus.

LSU is implementing its COVID-19 safety protocols by isolating players while they undergo further testing. Fortunately, per Sports Illustrated, no hospitalizations or serious illnesses have been reported.

As time goes on and the number of positive cases increases, the likelihood of a season diminishes.
