Georgia Tech football’s matchup against the Pittsburgh Panthers has been postponed due to COVID-related issues inside the Pittsburgh program.
It seems that every team in the county will be at least once this season impacted by COVID-19 in terms of having a game postponed or cancelled.
For Georgia Tech, that came on Thursday when it was announced that Saturday night’s game against the Pittsburgh Panthers will be postponed due to COVID-related protocols around the Pittsburgh program.
The Panthers announced at 5:00 p.m. on Thursday that they will be freezing all football related activities due to COVID. While the Panthers did not realize any information on if any or how many players have recently tested positive or how many players must isolate due to exposure.
The game will now be rescheduled tentatively for December 12th, a month from Thursday. For the Jackets, it’s the first time a game this season has been postponed due to COVID-19. The Jackets were originally coming off a bye week to face the Panthers but now will have a second bye week as they turn their attention to the Miami (FL) Hurricanes. The Jackets and Hurricanes are currently scheduled to kickoff next Saturday, November 21 at 8:00 p.m. at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami. The Jackets have won the last two meetings between the programs including a 2019 trip to Hard Rock Stadium, a 28-21 victory, Geoff Collins’s biggest win of his first season with the program. The game next weekend will be televised on the ACC Network.
The postponement marks the ninth college football game this week to be postponed or cancelled due to COVID-19 issues.
