After rumors started flying about COVID-19 cases within Kansas football, it looked like the Jayhawks may not play this Saturday, but thankfully that’s not the case.

Kansas football is set to take on Coastal Carolina in the 2020 season opener this Saturday at David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium, but the game seemed in jeopardy at one point today. It was reported that the Jayhawks had 14 confirmed COVID-19 cases, but the good news is that there was some missing context.

Kansas football student-athletes make up only three active cases and the game this Saturday against the Chanticleers is still on as scheduled per the Lawrence Journal-World.
