ROANOKE, Va. – On Saturday, the ACC announced that Tuesday’s Virginia Tech-North Carolina matchup has been postponed following a positive test coming from the Hokies program.

Virginia Tech hasn’t played since Feb. 6 when it defeated Miami.

This marks the third straight COVID-related postponement to affect the Hokies.

The Florida State and Louisville matchups that were scheduled for this past week were also moved back due to COVID issues with the Seminoles and Cardinals programs.

According to the Hokies’ schedule, as of now, their next game would be on Feb. 20 against the previously mentioned Seminoles.
