Notre Dame-Wake Forest football rescheduled for Dec. 12 after coronavirus postponement


The makeup date for Wake Forest and Notre Dame‘s rescheduled football game will be Dec. 12, the ACC announced Wednesday.

The game, billed as the Duke’s Mayo Kickoff Classic, was originally set to be played in Charlotte, North Carolina, on Saturday. The game was moved to Winston-Salem when attendance was capped by the state’s coronavirus restrictions, then was postponed Tuesday after the Irish had seven players test positive for COVID-19 and announced that 13 players were in isolation.

Wake Forest moved up its game against Campbell, originally scheduled for Oct. 9, to Oct. 2 to prevent the Demon Deacons from having consecutive open dates.

The ACC’s adjusted schedule, released in August, called for teams to play 11 games — 10 in conference and one out of conference — concluding with the ACC championship game on Dec. 12 or Dec. 19.

Given that Wake Forest-Notre Dame and VirginiaVirginia Tech — rescheduled from Sept. 19 — have been moved to Dec. 12, it would appear likely that the league’s title game will be played Dec. 19.
