The University of Florida announced Tuesday five additional football players have tested positive for coronavirus, five days before the Gators are scheduled to host LSU.
Florida reported one positive case a week ago but now have announced five additional positives in this week's update.
A report by the Orlando Sentinel said the university conducted 345 tests last week after reporting one case among football players and that no other student athletes tested positive out of an additional 437 tests.
The report did not specify which five players tested positive or if any additional players are quarantining.
Both teams are coming off disappointing losses.
LSU lost to unranked Missouri in a game moved away from Baton Rouge due to Hurricane Delta. The Gators, then a top five ranked team, lost to Texas A&M.
LSU and Florida are scheduled to kickoff at 3 p.m. CST Saturday. The game will be broadcast on ESPN.
