ATLANTA–Georgia Tech’s football game at Miami, postponed earlier today due to Hurricane Wilma, has been rescheduled for Saturday, Nov. 19 at the Orange Bowl, the Atlantic Coast Conference office announced Wednesday evening.
The ACC office also announced that Miami’s game at Wake Forest, originally scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 17, will now be played the previous Saturday, Nov. 12, when both schools had an open weekend.
The kickoff time and television network for the Tech-Miami game have not been determined..
“Dave Braine, Paul Dee and Ron Wellman have been tremendously cooperative with the conference office and each other in our efforts to reschedule these games,” said ACC Commissioner John Swofford.
“Each institution’s rescheduled game was a result of the postponement of the Georgia Tech at Miami game due to the projected path of Hurricane Wilma. Using the best information we have regarding Hurricane Wilma, we needed to make the decision for the safety of the numerous student-athletes, institutional personnel, fans and Florida residents.
“We are extremely appreciative of the efforts by these three schools to quickly resolve this issue.”
Tech Director of Athletics Dave Braine said, “We feel that playing the game on Nov. 19 is the best possible solution for everyone concerned. We especially appreciate the cooperation of Wake Forest in moving their game with Miami to accomodate the Georgia Tech-Miami game.”
