Texas Football to Resume Spring Practice After COVID-19 Pause

NCAA Football: Texas at West Virginia

After a week of shutting down spring practice due to COVID-19, it appears that the Teas Longhorns will try to hit the field again on Thursday.

Texas started spring practice last week but had to shut it down after just one practice due to some positive COVID-19 tests. It had been reported that a few more positive results came in earlier this week, but the number was not big enough to keep the Longhorns off the practice field as the team’s medical staff gave them clearance.


Although the team has not been able to fully practice, they have been going through walk through sessions while wearing masks.

Texas still has 14 remaining practices left for their spring schedule and barring any further pauses or setbacks, they appear to still have enough time left to complete all of their scheduled practices.

When the Longhorns take the field Thursday morning, that practice will officially be day two of spring ball.

As of now, the orange-white spring football game is still set for April 24th and will be open to the public according to Athletic Director Chris Del Conte.
