Wake Forest calls off Duke matchup due to positive COVID-19 cases

Due to an abundance of positive COVID-19 cases, subsequent quarantining of close contacts and injuries, Wake Forest football will not play this weekend’s game (Nov. 21) against Duke.

Wake Forest has suspended team activities for Wednesday and Thursday this week; the team will not practice.

“Our number one priority is the health and well-being of our student-athletes, coaches and staff,” Director of Athletics John Currie stated.

Wake Forest plans to work with Duke and the ACC to potentially reschedule the game; however, the likelihood seems slim.

Wake Forest last played Nov. 14 in Chapel Hill — a 59-53 loss to UNC.

Earlier this week, the ACC announced several adjustments to its late-season schedule due to similar COVID-related issues within the Miami football program.
