Ohio State game canceled due to COVID-19 cases within Maryland program

Maryland says eight players have tested positive over the last seven days.

This Saturday's match-up between Ohio State and Maryland has been canceled due to COVID-19 cases within Maryland's program.

Maryland says eight players have tested positive over the last seven days.

In an announcement posted on their athletics website, Maryland said they are pausing all team-related activities with the game as well. 

Maryland says the game will not be rescheduled.

The school says the decision was made by the athletics director and president following a recommendation from university health officials and in consultations with the Big Ten Conference.

In a statement, Ohio State head coach Ryan Day said:

"The health, safety and well-being of our student-athletes is our main concern. 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.”
