LSU football lifts COVID-19 entrance protocols

  LSU football lifts COVID-19 entrance protocols Practically all virus-related restrictions for attending games are eliminated. Fans under the age of 12 no longer have to wear masks in outdoor spaces, but guests must still wear face coverings in the indoor portions of Tiger Stadium. "This is amazing progress," Dr. O’Neal added. "But the game is not over. This virus will surge again, and Louisiana must be prepared before it arrives yet again by getting vaccinated. The vaccines we have are safe and effective, and getting vaccinated is our best shot at defeating COVID-19."LSU says coronavirus hospitalizations in Louisiana have decreased by 80% over the past seven weeks.

Saturday’s game between Oklahoma and Kansas was halted due to a brief power outage in Lawrence.

With just over ten minutes to go in the first quarter, Kansas Memorial Stadium lost power. All the scoreboards went down, prompting an official timeout. The succinctly stated reason was that “everything is off.”

The Oklahoman’s Ryan Aber, covering the game from the press box, said everything except the stadium lights went down.

  Watch: Jim Harbaugh snubs ESPN's Molly McGrath on postgame interview McGrath ended up interviewing Michigan quarterback Cade McNamara after the game instead. Harbaugh’s reason for avoiding the interview is unclear. Maybe he will argue that he thought he was just avoiding a fan or someone else on the field and did not realize it was ESPN’s reporter trying to interview him.That’s an unfortunate blemish for him despite his team improving to 6-0. Maybe he will end up apologizing like another famous head coach did.Subscribe to Yardbarker's Morning Bark, the most comprehensive newsletter in sports.

The delay was a brief one, lasting less than ten minutes. Kansas wound up scoring a touchdown on the drive to take a 7-0 lead.

Power outages can be a fact of life during games, and are uncommon but not unprecedented. It’s kind of an awkward look for Kansas, but there were no real problems as a result, so they can more or less laugh it off.
