No. 15 Ohio State’s matchup in the CBS Sports Classic with No. 21 Kentucky, set for this Saturday in Las Vegas, has been cancelled due to positive COVID-19 results within the Ohio State program.

According to a release, all team-related activities have been cancelled, and the game will not be rescheduled.

Ohio State and Kentucky’s cancellation comes as numerous programs across the country are seeing games cancelled due to COVID-19, including No. 2 Duke and No. 4 UCLA, who each have suffered cancelled contests this week. UCLA is scheduled to face North Carolina in the other half of the CBS Sports Classic bracket, potentially leaving the four-team tournament in jeopardy.
