The postponements will allow for more testing and contract tracing that are required by the ACC. This is unfortunate as UofL already had one lengthy Covid pause in December. Hopefully, this one won’t be as long. As of now, both postponed games do not have scheduled makeup dates. The Cards next scheduled game is against Pittsburgh on February 10th at the Yum Center.
