TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA (AP) – The game between No. 4 Clemson and Florida State was postponed when medical personnel from both schools failed to agree to play on Saturday.
The Atlantic Coast Conference announced that the Tigers and Seminoles had to announce the postponement hours before playing at Doak Campbell Stadium. No makeup date was announced.
Star Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence was to make his first start since October 24. He has missed the last two matches, including a 47–40 double overtime loss at Notre Dame after testing positive for COVID-19.
Clemson Athletic Director Dan Radakovich said the school followed all ACC protocols this week.
“We now look forward to action next week against Pitt for Senior Day and Military Appreciation Day at Memorial Stadium,” Radakovich said in a statement.
“We hope to be able to play Clemson in December,” Florida State coach Mike Norwell said in a statement. The Seminoles are scheduled to play Virginia next Saturday.
The ACC also announced several schedule changes. Louisville recently moved on December 12 in a Boston College game. To be played on 28 November.
The game of Wake Forest in Louisville will be played on 19 December instead of 19 November. The game of Demon Deacons with Duke, which was closed for this week, will not be rescheduled.
This week, 18 of the 62 scheduled games have been postponed. This is the 81st match of the season after scheduling at the end of August – and is believed to be the first game of the day of the game.
