U-M Football Activities Going Virtual
The University of Michigan has stopped all in-person activities regarding football due to potential COVID-19 issues on the team, according to the school.
The 2-4 Wolverines will be conducting all football activities virtually for the time being. They are set to play Maryland on Saturday at Michigan Stadium. They lost to Penn State last Saturday in Ann Arbor 27-17.
This does not affect any other sport at Michigan at this time. The men's and women's basketball teams have started their seasons, as has the hockey team.
Head coach Jim Harbaugh (pictured), during his weekly press conference on Monday, said there are "presumptive positives and are awaiting results".
The Wolverines are one of the few teams in the Big Ten to not have any of their games canceled due to COVID-19. The Northwestern @ Minnesota game, set for Saturday at noon, has been canceled due to COVID-19 issues on Minnesota's team.
