Texas Tech reports zero COVID-19 positive tests in week after game

Texas Tech reported no positives among 360 COVID-19 tests conducted for football players and staff during three testing periods last week, which followed its first game.

The latest numbers released Monday showed no active cases for the Red Raiders, who are scheduled to open Big 12 play Saturday at home against No. 8 Texas.

During preseason camp last month, the Red Raiders at one point had at least 20 players out because of positive tests, in addition to an unspecified number of other players who had to quarantine because of close contact with those who tested positive.

Tech's overall numbers since getting back on campus this summer include reported recoveries of 75 football players and five staff members with the team.
