During a season that’s been constantly hit with COVID-19 cases, the ACC announced on Sunday that Wednesday’s Louisville-Pitt game (Feb. 10) has been postponed.

Us usual, the postponement follows additional positive tests, along with subsequent quarantining and contact tracing within the Louisville program

Additionally, head coach Chris Mack has contracted COVID-19; according to a release from the university, he’s experiencing mild symptoms. When Louisville plays at Virginia Tech on Saturday — assuming that game goes off without a hitch — Mack will be absent. Veteran assistant coach Dino Gaudio will replace Mack.
