Central Arkansas after first football game: COVID-19 tests all negative

Hawkeye Insider: For all the doubt that was to be had this offseason about the prospects of a 2020 college football season being held, the action returned to the gridiron this past Saturday when Central Arkansas notched a 24-17 win over Austin Peay in what made for a nationally-televised matchup of two FCS teams. And as if the mere sight of a college football game being played, despite the COVID-19 pandemic, wasn’t encouraging enough, the first round of test results that came back for one team after the contest may bode well for the sport going forward in 2020.

According to a report from The Arkansas Democrat-Gazzette, all of Central Arkansas’ COVID-19 tests that were conducted on Sunday morning after the game came back negative. Per the Democrat-Gazette, the next round of testing for UCA players is scheduled for Tuesday. Test results for Austin Peay are not currently known.
