Not that either of them is exactly in the bag either, but a chance to pick up a morale-boosting win against Duke and/or NC State before Pitt doesn't hurt IMO.

Football vs. Pitt Rescheduled

Yellow Jackets to host Panthers on Saturday, Dec. 12

The Atlantic Coast Conference announced on Thursday that Saturday’s football contest between Georgia Tech and Pitt has been rescheduled to be played on Saturday, Dec. 12 at Bobby Dodd Stadium.

The contest was rescheduled due to Covid-19-related protocols within both teams.

“It’s unfortunate that we will not be able to play this Saturday as scheduled, but the decision was made in the best interests of the health and safety of both teams,” Georgia Tech director of athletics Todd Stansbury said. “For our team in particular, a combination of on-field injuries, Covid-19 contact tracing and a relatively low number of positive Covid-19 tests left us unable to field the requisite number of student-athletes needed to compete, particularly at certain positions.

“The health and safety of our student-athletes is our No. 1 priority,” Stansbury continued. “Our medical staff is already taking the necessary steps to care for our student-athletes that have contracted Covid-19 and to mitigate its spread. I look forward to our team being able to return to the field as soon as it is safe and appropriate to do so. I also wish the student-athletes and staff at Pitt the very best and send our best wishes for their health, safety and a quick return to competition.”

Georgia Tech football has temporarily paused athletic activities. The Yellow Jackets are expected to return to game action on Saturday, Nov. 21 when they visit Miami (Fla.). Game time is set for 8 p.m. and the contest will be televised nationally on the ACC Network.

Tickets and Georgia Tech-issued parking passes for Saturday’s postponed game versus Pitt will be honored when Tech hosts the Panthers on Dec. 12. Georgia Tech commencement activities scheduled for Dec. 11 and 12 will still be held on those dates. More specific information about any changes will be sent through the Georgia Tech commencement communication channels.

Ah, that sucks. Athletic activities temporarily paused so no free weeks of practice if we lose this week. Didn't realize we had enough cases/tracing on our side to be unable to field enough players.

You guys have broken my heart. This was my one trip to BDS this season. I was so looking forward to seeing Tech play. We left this morning and we’re almost to ATL now. Oh well, hope all the athletes and coaches stay safe.

Do to the low number of positive covid tests? Is that a misquote
