Yesterday the Cards found out that Covid once again would affect their season. This time it was not due to positive tests for Louisville. This time it was Miami. Due to being short-handed this weekend, Miami had to postpone their game vs Georgia Tech. The ripple effect was felt throughout the ACC. It did not affect this Fridays game vs Syracuse but next weeks black Friday game vs BC was moved to December the 12th. The Cardinals were supposed to host Wake on December 5th but now will face them a week early and give the Cards a bye the week of the 5th.
