2020-21 Season

Michigan’s game at Penn State postponed

Michigan’s Saturday trip to play at Penn State has officially been postponed. The Nittany Lions announced a COVID pause today that will postpone their upcoming games against Michigan and Rutgers.

“The institutions will work with the Big Ten Conference to identify rescheduling options,” the statement said. “No determination has been made on how the pause may impact scheduled games beyond Jan. 12.”

This is Michigan’s second postponement of the 2020-21 season. The Wolverines lost their home game against NC State but replaced the Wolfpack with Toledo on the schedule. The Big Ten schedule features “collapsible byes” to fit in rescheduled games but Penn State is up to four games that need to be rescheduled. Wisconsin, Ohio State, Michigan and Rutgers all need to make up games against Penn State.

    Yeah… that’s probably the issue and I’m not even sure what you gain by jumping through all of those hoops. :rofl:

    This is the first major disruption to the conference schedule though so it’ll be interesting how it is handled.

    Disappointing since nothing has been quite as fun lately as watching this team play.

    But as long as they have an awesome performance tonight, we can ride those good vibes into next week. Tonight is a big one.

    If the game happens, I’d be shocked if it was anywhere other than State College.

    Particularly with Brooks suffering a facial injury. A good spot for a mini break.
