With the team still on pause for COVID-related reasons, Georgia Tech’s Saturday game at Louisville was postponed Wednesday. The decision, announced by the ACC, followed Tuesday’s postponement of the Yellow Jackets’ Wednesday game at Notre Dame.

Coach Josh Pastner’s team was put on pause Tuesday, before the team’s scheduled practice and trip to South Bend, Ind., to play the Fighting Irish, because of a positive COVID-19 test within the team and subsequent quarantining and contact tracing.

Tech’s next scheduled game after the Louisville game is a home game against Pittsburgh on Jan. 12. The Jackets have played nine games, with three games postponed or canceled.

The Tech-Louisville game is the 12th ACC league game that has been postponed this season, with 18 played.
