Florida State Seminoles football will not face off against the Duke Blue Devils this Saturday.

Instead, Duke will play the Miami Hurricanes at home.

The full release from the ACC:

The Atlantic Coast Conference announced today that the Florida State at Duke game will not be played on Saturday, December 5. Instead, Miami will travel to Duke this Saturday for a 8 p.m. kickoff on ACC Network.

The game times and networks for all games on Saturday, December 5 are as follows:

Saturday, Dec. 5Western Carolina at North Carolina, noon, ACCNSyracuse at Notre Dame, 2:30 p.m., NBC (previously announced)Boston College at Virginia, 3:30 p.m., RSNGeorgia Tech at NC State, 4 p.m., ACC NetworkClemson at Virginia Tech, 7:30 p.m., ABCMiami at Duke, 8 p.m., ACC Network

As was previously announced, the 2020 ACC Football scheduling model includes 11 games (10 conference plus one non-conference), played over at least 13 weeks with each team having two open dates. Through games of Nov. 28, the ACC has played 74 of its 85 scheduled games (87.1 percent).

The question of whether to decide to postpone the game before travel and other plans went underway began this weekend, as FSU continues to deal with a coronavirus outbreak that left 44 players available for Saturday’s also-postponed game vs. Virginia.
