For the second straight week, the Georgia Tech football program has had a game postponed.
Georgia Tech’s game against the Miami Hurricanes will have to wait. On Monday evening, it was reported first by the AJC’s Ken Sugiura and shortly after confirmed by the program itself. The game has been tentatively rescheduled for December 19th.
For the Jackets, it marks the second consecutive week they will have a game postponed due to COVID-19. The Jacksts originally scheduled half this past weekend against Pittsburgh was postponed to December 12. The Jackets next scheduled contest is for next weekend against the Duke Blue Devils.
If the game goes on as scheduled, the Jackets will not have played a game in 27 days, their last contest coming on October 31 against Notre Dame, a 31-13 defeat at Bobby Dodd Stadium.
With their third straight bye week, the Jackets will now have the opportunity to continue to get healthy as well as work on more individual points of their game instead of focusing more so on a game plan. Luckily, the Jackets have not been too affected by COVID-19 and will be able to continue practice as a team. The Jackets currently sit at 2-5 on the season in Geoff Collins’s second season as head coach on The Flats. They’ll have four games as of right now to match their season win total from a year ago, a 3-9 campaign.
Wirh the postponement of the Miami game, the Jacksts remaining schedule is the following; vs Duke (Nov.28), at NC State (Dec.5), vs Pittsburgh (Dec.12), at Miami (Dec.19).
