ANN ARBOR, Michigan (WTVN)--With less than two weeks until the biggest game of the season, Ohio State's biggest rival has canceled it's football game this weekend over coronavirus concerns.

The University of Michigan football program is dealing with a coronavirus outbreak, prompting their game against Maryland scheduled for Saturday to be declared a no contest.

The move puts the game between Ohio State and Michigan in doubt. It's scheduled for Saturday, December 12th.

Ohio State has already had two games canceled this year, and needs to play it's final two scheduled games to be eligible for the Big ten Championship Game on December 19th.

As of Thursday morning, the Buckeyes are scheduled to play Michigan State this Saturday in East Lansing. Head Coach Ryan Day will not be with the team, as he remains isolated over a positive coronavirus test.

Defensive Line Coach and Associate Head Coach Larry Johnson will lead the team this Saturday, if that game remains on the schedule.
