Syracuse-Georgia Tech start delayed over testing issues
The start of Saturday’s Atlantic Coast Conference game between Syracuse and Georgia Tech was delayed more than 30 minutes as Syracuse officials worked to confirm negative COVID-19 tests.
Syracuse announced the game was put on hold “out of an abundance of caution” about 10 minutes after the scheduled noon ET start at Syracuse. Kickoff was delayed until 12:37 p.m.
Syracuse tweeted that the team re-tested three players on Saturday to confirm negative results. Once all three players were cleared, the game was allowed to begin. ACC players are tested three times a week.
The Yellow Jackets are 1-1 on the season. Syracuse is 0-2.
