Saturday’s game was canceled again due to COVID-19 issues with the Terrapins. The game will not be rescheduled.

“This has been a season of promise and of adversity,” said Head Coach Michael Locksley. “Our team has demonstrated a tremendous work ethic, resolve and displayed Maryland pride throughout this unique season.
