The University of Michigan made the hard decision to cancel the Ohio State football game scheduled to be played in Columbus on December 11th.  Michigan made the announcement via Twitter

Warde Manuel, University of Michigan’s Donald R. Shepherd Director of Athletics was quoted saying, “We have not been cleared to participate in practice at this time.
