Maryland’s pause came back on Sept. 3, when there were a cumulative total of 63 positive tests out of 2,191 screenings that had been administered. There has been no team-by-team breakdown of the results from the school.
This marked the second time since student-athletes returned to campus that the football program has been forced to pause workouts. Other schools in the B1G have taken similar measures.
