For the third time since the ACC season began, the Virginia Tech Hokies will have a conference game postponed due to COVID-19.
In each case, it was due to an outbreak at the school of the Hokies’ opponent. In this case, it is Florida State. The ACC announced on Monday that FSU’s next three games would be postponed. The three opponents are Boston, Pittsburgh and Virginia Tech.
The Hokies were scheduled to host the Seminoles on Feb. 9.
Virginia Tech’s game at Virginia in January was postponed as was a home game against Boston College later in the month. The league has yet to announce makeup dates for those games.
With Florida State having its next three games postponed, that would six total games, including five ACC games lost due to COVID-19. It would be impossible to make up all of those games.
This is disappointing for the Hokies as FSU is one of the top programs in the ACC, along with Virginia and the Hokies. The Hokies took down Virginia and still aren’t getting enough national respect, despite winning their last two games without guard Tyrece Radford.
The Seminoles are still scheduled to host the Hokies on Feb. 20.
The Hokies are on the road for both games this week; at Pittsburgh on Wednesday and at Miami on Saturday.
