It’s becoming more evident by the day that 2020 has been one of the most unusual years ever. In fact, the sports world has entirely changed because of the times we’re living in.
While we’re supposed to get close to a full slate of college football games this Saturday, there’s one ACC matchup that is currently delayed.
Georgia Tech and Syracuse haven’t kicked off in the Carrier Dome yet because both teams are undergoing last-second testing to make sure none of the players on the field have contracted COVID-19.
“Out of an abundance of caution Syracuse University is temporarily delaying kick off to confirm negative COVID-19 test results,” Syracuse said in a statement.

Daily testing has become part of sports teams’ everyday routine.
In order for sports to carry on during a pandemic, coaches need to know which players either have the coronavirus or have come in contact with it. That allows them to then quarantine players that are sick.
As for today’s game between Georgia Tech and Syracuse, there is still no update on when the game will kick off.
Fans will not be allowed to attend today’s showdown in the Carrier Dome, so that’s one less concern for the Orange this weekend.
