The University of Michigan has cancelled their 2018 Spring Game that was set to take place on Saturday, April 14 due to weather patterns that project a high percentage of rain and thunder, according to a press release.

Due to the limited number of spring practices remaining, the University's Athletic Department has said the game will not be rescheduled.

"We want to ensure the safety of our fans as well as the student-athletes and staff," Warde Manuel, Michigan Director of Athletics Donald R. Shepherd, said in a press release. "We also wanted to provide as much notice in advance for fans and the families of our players that were considering attending."
