Hey @CollegeGameDay fam, ICYMI I announced yesterday during my #WellnessWednesday on IG that I tested positive for COVID-19 earlier this week. I’m doing okay, but will be doing the show from home this Saturday. pic.twitter.com/84XbD1dJPZ

Fortunately, Howard did indicate that he is planning on doing Saturday’s show, but he will be appearing remotely with the rest of the crew.
Howard became the second big name in the world of college football to reveal a positive test Wednesday. Clemson’s star quarterback Trevor Lawrence also announced a positive test and will need to isolate for at least 10 days as a part of ACC protocols.
