Just over two weeks ago, Maryland halted all voluntary football workouts after its testing results for COVID-19. Earlier this month, the athletic department administered 185 tests and there were nine positive results.
A handful of B1G programs — including Indiana, Michigan State, Rutgers and Ohio State — have halted workouts due to results from COVID-19 testing. While there have been some bumps along the way, this is some good news out of College Park.
