Georgia Tech at Miami Postponed

The Georgia Tech at Miami football game has been postponed due to Hurricane Wilma's projected path. The game was originally scheduled to be televised by ABC on Saturday, October 22 at 12:00 noon., but has been rescheduled for November 19.

The Atlantic Coast Conference announces two rescheduled games due to the postponement of this Saturday's Georgia Tech at Miami game, created by the projected path of Hurricane Wilma.

The Miami at Wake Forest game that was originally slated for Thursday, November 17, has been rescheduled and will be played on Saturday, November 12 in Winston-Salem. This move will allow the Georgia Tech at Miami football game which was originally scheduled for Saturday, October 22 to be played on Saturday, November 19 instead.

ACC Commissioner John D. Swofford:

"After discussions with Paul Dee and Dave Braine, we feel that the responsible action is to postpone the Georgia Tech at Miami football game. The projected course of Hurricane Wilma shows that if it stays on its current path, it will have a direct affect on the safety of numerous student-athletes, institutional personnel, fans and Florida residents. Our top priority is the issue of public safety for everyone and we would not want a college football game to interfere with the preparation work to be done by the public safety and emergency personnel.

"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.

Each institutions 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."
