The Louisville Cardinals at Virginia Cavaliers football game on Saturday, November 7 has been rescheduled for Saturday, November 14, the ACC has announced.
The game was postponed due to a number of positive novel coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) test results and subsequent quarantining within the Louisville football team.
“We are taking a precautionary measure to pause due the number of student-athletes and staff that have been impacted by the virus,” said Louisville Vice-President/Director of Athletics Vince Tyra. “With Virginia and us both having a bye week on November 14, we are fortunate to reschedule the game for that date. It also avails us a chance to gauge any further spread of the virus. Test results from both Friday and Sunday will dictate when we return to team activities. We appreciate the ACC and Virginia working with us at this time.”
Louisville and Virginia will now tentatively meet at Scott Stadium in Charlottesville, Va., on Saturday, Nov. 14 and the game will be televised by the ACC Network at 3:30pm ET.
Both teams were previously scheduled to be off on November 14, so no other games had to be moved to reschedule the Louisville-Virginia contest.
