Just like Ohio State, Michigan is dealing with coronavirus issues.

The Wolverines put their in-person team activities on hold as they work to confirm "presumptive positive" COVID-19 tests with PCR tests, per the Michigan Insider. A team spokesman provided a statement to several reporters: "Out of caution, we are holding all team activities virtually today."

Since Michigan is currently trying to confirm the positive cases with more-accurate PCR tests, it's unclear whether this will be a one-day stoppage or something that will require a lengthier pause, the Michigan Insider reports. The Wolverines are slated to face Maryland on Saturday in their second-to-last regular season contest.

Of note: The Game is scheduled to be played at noon in 12 days. Ohio State – which shut down the facility for an indefinite amount of time on Friday – and Michigan are both now dealing with positive COVID-19 cases less than two weeks before the greatest rivalry in college sports is set to kick off.
