Wake Forest’s Football Schedule has Changed AGAIN Due to COVID-19

NCAA Football: Wake Forest at Syracuse Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

Wake Forest and the ACC announced yesterday that next weekend’s football game against Miami will not be played due to continued positive COVID cases and contact tracing in the Wake Forest program. The Deacs have once again paused all football activities.

The Miami game becomes the fourth Wake Forest schedule change in the last two weeks after the Deacs initially had to postpone the Duke game last Saturday.

The release did use the word “postponed” and not “cancelled”, though at this point it is hard to imagine that the game will be made up with the season ending on December 19 and Wake already scheduled to play two more games—at home against Notre Dame on December 12 and at Louisville on December 19.

Athletic Director John Currie indicated to Conor O’Neill that he did not think Wake had played its last football game of the year.

At this point if the Duke’s Mayo Kickoff Classic (which ironically has yet to be played in spite of the fact that it is almost December) is to be played, I don't see any way that the Miami game will be made up.

Get well Deacs. Wear a mask.
