Breaking: Wake Forest vs Notre Dame Game Postponed

The Deacs will not be playing this weekend

NCAA Football: Wake Forest at Syracuse Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

Saturday’s matchup between Wake Forest and Notre Dame has been postponed, according to Notre Dame’s football PR team.

Per the release, Notre Dame had 7 positive tests for Covid-19 among the 94 tests administered, resulting in a total of 13 players in isolation and 10 in quarantine. Because of this, the Irish have postponed all football related activities, including the game against Wake Forest on Saturday.

Saturday’s matchup had already been affected by Covid-19 one time, as the Duke Mayo Classic was moved from Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte to Truist Field in Winston-Salem in early September. With the game being postponed, both teams will have to find an opening on their schedules or risk the game not being played at all.

Wake Forest and Notre Dame do both have open dates on October 3rd, which would push the game back just 1 week, however, that may not allow enough time for Notre Dame to resume football activities. If that is the case, Wake will probably have to find a future opponent willing to play on October 3rd, and then play Notre Dame later in the season when they would have played said future opponent.

Things could get a little crazy with the schedule in the near future.
