MI football cancels spring game due to weather concerns

Another major program has cancelled its spring game amid weather concerns.

MI joins Wisconsin and Iowa State in choosing to cancel their annual spring football games for weather.

Just a day after Wisconsin announced its plans to cancel its spring game, MI is following suit.

Michigan's athletic department said weather patterns that project a high percentage chance for rain and thunderstorms on Saturday were the reason for canceling the game.

In a statement issued Wednesday afternoon, MI athletic director Warde Manuel said the school wanted to give as much advance notice as possible.

MI announced Tuesday that the football program's spring game has been canceled due to inclement weather as rain and thunderstorms are expected Saturday.

Jim Harbaugh released a statement on the decision as well.

With finals beginning on campus next week, the school has chosen not to reschedule the game.

"We want to ensure the safety of our fans as well as the student-athletes and staff", said Warde Manuel, Michigan's Donald R. Shepherd Director of Athletics in a statement on their website.
