The ACC announced today that the previously-postponed football game between Virginia Tech and Virginia has been rescheduled for Saturday, December 12, 2020.

Virginia Tech game date

The game, which was originally scheduled to have the prime 7:30 ABC slot on September 19, was postponed on September 12 because Virginia Tech decided they could not field a competitive team safely due to COVID-19 positive tests, contact tracing and quarantine, and injuries.

“It became pretty apparent as we approached the weekend and our mock preparations for the first game … that we were not going to be able to safely play a football game,” Virginia Tech head coach Justin Fuente said on Monday night’s Tech Talk Live radio program.

At the time of postponement, no makeup date was announced, until today.

A key point is that the ACC did not officially schedule the ACC Championship Game for December 19. The conference announced in July that the game would be on December 12 or December 19, and even with today’s announcement of a conference game on December 12, the league did not commit to a December 19 championship game date.

  1. I never understood why they didn’t start the season earlier and leave a month at the tail end for rescheduling.

  2. If VT and UVA are out of contention for the championship (as will likely be the case), hold both games Dec 12. Then again, we could be undefeated with a 2-0 record on Dec 12.

  3. If VT and UVA are not in the hunt for the championship there might not be a need to move the championship game, they could be both held on the same day.
