Michigan cancels spring game because of weather forecast
ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Michigan has canceled its spring football game Saturday because of concerns about the weather.
The school says there’s a good chance of rain and thunderstorms Saturday, and the game will not be rescheduled.
Coach Jim Harbaugh says the decision is in the best interest of fans, athletes and the staff needed for the event. Athletic director Warde Manuel says the school wanted to provide advance notice for fans who were considering attending.
Wisconsin also canceled its spring football game Friday night because of a forecast calling for heavy rain and thunderstorms.
