Saturday’s top 25 matchup between Duke and Florida State has been postponed.
Earlier in the evening on Friday (Jan. 1), it was announced that Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski wouldn’t coach in the game, due to coming in contact with someone that tested positive for COVID-19. This person wasn’t a member of Duke’s travel party.
Coach K didn’t travel with the team to Tallahassee.
However, not too long after that news hit, the game was officially postponed. There was a positive COVID-19 case within the Florida State state program.
