On a Wednesday afternoon Zoom call, Sandy Barbour revealed that 102 Penn State student-athletes have been tested for COVID-19 since athletes began returning to campus, with zero positive results.

Barbour also said the department is still working on a seating plan for this fall but you will likely need to be a season ticket holder to be able to attend games if in-person seating is possible.

Penn State is the third Big Ten East school to report zero positive COVID-19 test results among its first round of testing, joining Indiana and Maryland.

Barbour announced that test results will be made public every two weeks going forward.
