It appears that Duke's bye week will be extended for a little longer.
Both the Blue Devils and their next opponent, Wake Forest, announced that their game scheduled for this Saturday at 12 p.m. will not be played.
The two teams as well as the ACC will work together in an attempt to reschedule the contest, per a Duke Athletics spokesman. However, the only open Saturday remaining on Wake Forest's schedule is Dec. 19, the day of the ACC Championship Game, since its game against Notre Dame already had to be rescheduled to Dec. 12.
The postponement is due to multiple Demon Deacons testing positive for COVID-19, although the exact number is not known. According to the release from the ACC, multiple members of the program are now quarantining and Wake Forest is following the protocols that were established before the season began by the ACC Medical Advisory Group.
In light of the announcement, Duke now will not take the field until Nov. 28 against Georgia Tech in Atlanta.
