Maryland has been on a roll.

The Terrapins had hoped to take the momentum from their last two wins over Minnesota and Penn State into their showdown with Ohio State.  After a rough opener against Northwestern, Maryland’s transfer quarterback Taulia Tagovailoa has been hot, completing 44-of-61 passes for 676 yards and six touchdown passes in the last two games.

Unfortunately, a spike in COVID-19 cases in the Maryland football program resulted in the team shutting down activities and the cancellation of the game against the Buckeyes scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 14.

Following the cancellation, Maryland coach Mike Locksley released a statement.

“We’re obviously extremely disappointed that we’ll be unable to host Ohio State this Saturday,” Locksley said in the initial release.

Locksley provided additional status updates on Thursday night as the Terps continue to deal with the increase in COVID-19 cases.

Hopefully the Terps are able to avoid major issues and get back on the field as quickly as possible. For now, Maryland is scheduled to play Michigan State in Week 5. Stay tuned for updates to that matchup.
