Maryland vs. Ohio State Football Game Canceled Due to COVID-19 Outbreak

Maryland Director of Athletics Damon Evans and University of Maryland President Darryll Pines announced plans to pause its football program's activities and canceled Saturday night's game against No. 3 Ohio State.

The game was canceled due to an elevated number of COVID-19 cases within Maryland's program. The game will not be rescheduled, according to the university.

Pines made his decision based on a recommendation from university health officials, and in consultation with the Big Ten Conference. Maryland released a statement Wednesday regarding its canceled game versus Ohio State.

"There is nothing more important than the health and well-being of our student-athletes, coaches and staff," Evans said in a release.
