Editor's note: This article was updated following Tuesday's announcement that Duke will play at Florida State Dec. 12.

Make that another schedule change for Duke football.

The ACC announced that the Blue Devils will host No. 9 Miami in Wallace Wade Stadium this upcoming Saturday instead of their originally-scheduled matchup with Florida State. The game will air at 8 p.m. on ACC Network.

There was no official reason given for the switch, though Florida State did just postpone its contest against Virginia this past Saturday at the last-minute after a positive COVID-19 test and contact tracing.

Miami was originally slated to take on Wake Forest this upcoming Saturday before that game was cancelled due to COVID-19 issues within the Demon Deacon program.

This marked the third time that Duke has had an alteration to its schedule this season, as the Blue Devils faced off against Virginia seven weeks earlier than expected and were unable to take the field against Wake Forest. 

Then on Tuesday afternoon, the Blue Devils made one final schedule adjustment, announcing they will close the regular season with a trip to Florida State Dec. 12. The game time and television details for that contest will be announced at a later date.

For now, however, Duke will turn its attention to the Hurricanes, who are 7-1 and led by explosive quarterback D'Eriq King.
