You won’t be seeing the Miami Hurricanes on the football field for the rest of the month.

The Atlantic Coast Conference has announced that a COVID-19 outbreak on the team has forced Miami to postpone its next 2 games against Georgia Tech (this Saturday) and Wake Forest (scheduled for 11/28).

They are shifting around the December scheduled to make up those games. They will now play at Wake Forest on December 5th, home against UNC Dec 12th, and finish off the regular season at home on Dec 19th against Georgia Tech

Miami was on a roll, having won its last four games.

How will these postponements and coronavirus shape the postseason?
