Minnesota announced Monday that its upcoming game Saturday against Northwestern has been canceled and all team-related activities remain paused due to ongoing COVID-19 issues.

The matchup will be ruled a no-contest and won't be rescheduled, per Big Ten policies.

"The health and safety of our student-athletes, coaches, and staff continue to be our main priority," athletic director Mark Coyle said in a statement. "The last couple of days have shown a decrease in positive cases, but not to the point where we are able to return to competition.

"We are disappointed not to be able to compete against Northwestern on Saturday, but we need to continue to focus on following all CDC and MDH guidelines and slow the spread of the virus."
