Ohio State-Maryland Game Canceled Due to COVID

The Maryland Terrapin athletic department announced Wednesday that, due to an elevated number of COVID cases, Saturday's home game against Ohio State has been canceled.

The school's statement:

Maryland Football will pause all team-related activities due to an elevated number of COVID-19 cases within the Terrapin's program," the school announced. "The Ohio State game scheduled for Saturday, November 14 has been canceled and will not be rescheduled."

"There is nothing more important than the health and well-being of our student-athletes, coaches and staff," Evans said. "We realize that this news is disappointing to all of the Maryland fans out there who were looking forward to the Terps taking on an outstanding Ohio State team, but the responsible thing for us to do is pause football activities, given the number of positive cases currently in our program."

COVID postponements and cancellations are starting to pile up across college football. LSU-Alabama, scheduled for Saturday on CBS, has been postponed, as has Tennessee-Texas A&M. Ohio State will now play a maximum of seven games if it goes the rest of the way without a cancellation.

Other games this week that have been postponed or canceled:

Georgia at Missouri

Auburn at Mississippi State

Memphis at Navy

Air Force at Wyoming

UL Monroe at Arkansas State
