Maryland football’s tentative game against the Michigan State Spartans will kick off at noon on Saturday.

The Terps moved out of The Hotel in College Park this Sunday, where they had been isolated since Wednesday after eight members of the team tested positive for COVID-19.

After Maryland’s game against Ohio State was canceled, head coach Mike Locksley said Thursday the team’s situation was “day-to-day” and decisions regarding its return to practice would be made by the medical staff.

While the Big Ten has announced the majority of its start times 12 days before the game, Sunday’s announcement came just six days before the contest amid its uncertainty.

The Spartans are just 1-3 on the season and have been outscored 73-7 in their last two games against Iowa and Indiana. Maryland opens up as a six-point favorite after entering its first three games as double-digit underdogs.
