Maryland’s game Saturday against No. 3 Ohio State has been canceled and will not be rescheduled after the Terps paused all team-related activities today because of an elevated number of COVID-19 cases within the Terrapins’ program.
Over the past seven days, eight Maryland football players have tested positive for COVID-19, according to a news release from the school.
The decision to pause football activities and cancel Saturday’s game was made jointly by athletic director Damon Evans and university president Darryll Pines following a recommendation from university health officials and in consultation with the Big Ten office.
