By Kevin Kelley -

The Clemson Tigers at Florida State Seminoles football game has been postponed due to COVID-19, the ACC announced on Saturday morning.

The two schools were scheduled to meet at Doak Campbell Stadium in Tallahassee, Fla., on Saturday, Nov. 21. The game was postponed following “…this morning’s game conference call at which time both teams’ medical personnel were unable to mutually agree on moving forward with the game.”

“We are disappointed that we will not be able to play today’s game against Florida State,” Clemson Director of Athletics Dan Radakovich said. “Clemson has followed all of the ACC’s protocols in preparation for this game. We look ahead to returning to action next week against Pitt for Senior Day and Military Appreciation Day.”

Clemson (7-1, 6-1 ACC) is next scheduled to play on Saturday, Nov. 28 at home against the Pitt Panthers. The kickoff time and television coverage will be announced no later than Sunday, Nov. 22.

“Our first priority is the health of our student-athletes, and I appreciate the protocols that have been put in place by FSU and the ACC to ensure everyone’s health while allowing us to play this season,” Florida State head coach Mike Norvell said. “It’s unfortunate that we will not have the opportunity to compete today, but we hope to be able to play Clemson in December. I am thankful for the support and coordination between our administration, Clemson and the ACC office. Our team will now turn our focus to hosting Virginia next week.”

Florida State (2-6, 1-6 ACC) is set to host the Virginia Cavaliers on Saturday, Nov. 28. Kickoff time and television coverage for that contest will also be announced no later than Sunday, Nov. 22.
