Michigan-Maryland Football Game Canceled
The Michigan-Maryland football game that was scheduled for Saturday has been canceled because of a rise in coronavirus cases within Michigan’s program.
The game will not be rescheduled and Michigan is pausing all in-person football activities until at least Monday, Dec. 7.
“The decision by our medical professionals to stop practices and cancel this Saturday’s game against Maryland was made with the health, safety and welfare of the student-athletes, coaches and staff as our utmost priority,” said Warde Manuel, the Donald R. Shepherd Director of Athletics. “We have seen an increase in the number of student-athletes unavailable to compete due to positive (COVID-19) tests and associated contact tracing due to our most recent antigen and PCR testing results.”
Daily testing will continue at Michigan and the school will consult with medical professionals and the local health department in determining with in-person activity can resume.
