LSU head football coach Ed Orgeron said Tuesday that most of his players have caught COVID-19.

According to Orgeron, he currently has three or four players with the virus while other players are in quarantine.

Despite the team having caught the virus, Orgeron said he feels confident going into their first game next week.
