NORMAN, Okla. -

Oklahoma football coach Lincoln Riley says nine players tested positive for COVID-19 upon returning to campus after being off the previous week.

According to Sooner Scoop, Riley said they had been taking precautions but they can only control so much of what the players do.

"Disappointed by the news obviously. We've done such a tremendous job this entire time. You know when you give your players some time there is some risk in that." said Riley on the positive COVID cases.
