1911 : MAC-Ohio Northern Football Game Cancelled Due to Heavy Downpour!

November 18, 2020 all-day

Much to the disappointment of the student body, the football game between the Michigan Agricultural College and Northern Ohio University was cancelled yesterday due to an undending downpour of rain. Snow had been removed from the field, but the unrelenting rain that preceded the game the previous night and morning made conditions unplayable, at least according to the Detroit Free Press of November 18, 1911.
