MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The University of Minnesota football program has announced that ten more people within the team have tested positive for the coronavirus.

An outbreak among athletes and staff prompted the team to halt all activities on Tuesday, including canceling its game against rival Wisconsin for the first time in 118 years.

Minnesota says seven more staff members and three more players have tested positive for the coronavirus.

The program had announced on Tuesday that 15 people within the program had tested positive in a five-day span.

Ten scheduled games this week involving FBS teams have been postponed or canceled.
