Georgia Tech’s spring football game will not be played.

The ACC announced Tuesday that it has cancelled “all athletic-related activities including all competition and practice through the end of the 2019-20 academic year” in order to mitigate the further spread of the coronavirus.

That means the April 10 Friday night scrimmage at Bobby Dodd Stadium won’t take place.

Coach Geoff Collins’ team completed its sixth of 15 spring practices last Thursday morning. Practice was to resume after spring break but the conference initially suspended all games, organized practices and participation in NCAA championships. The suspension has now become a cancellation.

The game would’ve been the second under Collins. Last spring, the Gold team defeated the White team, 30-20.

The Jackets finished 3-9 in 2019.

Georgia has also cancelled its spring game.
