Ohio State has canceled its second game in a row.

After the latest round of COVID-19 tests in the program on Sunday, the Buckeyes have been forced to call off Tuesday's matchup with UT Martin, which was scheduled for a 7 p.m. tip-off at the Schottenstein Center. The game will not be rescheduled, the program announced Sunday.

This past Thursday, Ohio State canceled its CBS Sports Classic contest against Kentucky, which was scheduled to take place on Saturday in Las Vegas, due to a COVID-19 outbreak in the program.

The next game on the Buckeyes' schedule is slated to tip off on Dec. 28, when New Orleans comes to Columbus. Per Ohio State, “the status of future games is to be determined.”

All team activities currently remain suspended and “players and staff will continue to be tested according to Ohio State protocols in consultation with the Big Ten Conference.”

Fans who purchased tickets to Tuesday’s game through the Ohio State Ticket Office and Ticketmaster will receive a refund and will receive direct communication via email with more information.
