The football game between No. 3 Ohio State University and the University of Maryland, scheduled for this Saturday at 3 p.m. in College Park, Md., on the Big Ten Network, has been canceled and will not be rescheduled.
Maryland announced today in a release that it has paused all team-related activities due to an elevated number of COVID-19 cases within the Terrapin’s program. The release also stated “the joint decision to pause football activities and cancel Saturday’s game was made by Director of Athletics Damon Evans and University of Maryland President Darryll Pines, following a recommendation from University health officials, and in consultation with the Big Ten Conference.”
“The health, safety and well-being of our student-athletes is our main concern,” head football coach Ryan Day said. “Obviously, we are disappointed at not being able to compete this week, but I am incredibly proud of our team and the way they have handled themselves throughout this entire pandemic.
“We wish Maryland, their student-athletes and programs well as they battle through this issue.”
