Maryland-Michigan State canceled
The Big Ten game Saturday between Maryland and Michigan State has been canceled after a COVID-19 outbreak on the Terrapins resulted in a positive test for coach Michael Locksley.
It’s the second straight cancellation for the Terrapins, who were scheduled to face Ohio State last week before several players on the team contracted the coronavirus. Maryland (2-1) has not played since beating Penn State on Nov. 7. Locksley tested positive for COVID-19 on Wednesday and is isolating at home.
Over the past seven days, 15 Maryland players have tested positive. There were seven positive cases among staff over that same time period.
Also Thursday, No. 24 Louisiana-Lafayette canceled its game against Central Arkansas on Saturday because of positive COVID-19 tests. Pittsburgh’s game at Georgia Tech was moved to Dec. 10.
