The University of Minnesota women's volleyball team has had a series postponed for the second straight weekend due to COVID-19, the program announced on Thursday.

The Gophers were originally scheduled to travel for a series against Ohio State from March 5-6, but COVID-19 concerns arose in Minnesota's locker room.

Minnesota's matchup the previous weekend against Michigan was called off as well after COVID-19 issues cropped up among the Wolverines.
