Maryland football’s matchup with the Michigan has been cancelled, as the Wolverines paused team activities Wednesday.

The Terps will, however, continue meetings and practice Wednesday, per a program release.

“The decision by our medical professionals to stop practices and cancel this Saturday’s game against Maryland was made with the health, safety and welfare of the student-athletes, coaches and staff as our utmost priority,” Warde Manuel, the Donald R. Shepherd Director of Athletics said in a statement. “We have seen an increase in the number of student-athletes unavailable to compete due to positive tests and associated contact tracing due to our most recent antigen and PCR testing results.”

This marks the third Maryland football game cancelled this season. The Terps missed matchups with Ohio State and Michigan State in November while activities were paused due to a coronavirus outbreak within the program.

Maryland is next scheduled to play Rutgers at home on December 12.
