Clemson-Florida State postponed after medical personnel ‘unable to mutually agree’ on playing game

Saturday's game between No. 4 Clemson and Florida State in Tallahassee has been postponed, the ACC announced just three hours before the scheduled kickoff.

"The postponement follows this morning’s game conference call at which time both teams’ medical personnel were unable to mutually agree on moving forward with the game," the conference said in a statement.

This is the third ACC game that's been postponed this weekend. Wake Forest's matchup against Duke was also postponed. Georgia Tech's football game at Miami, originally scheduled to be played on Saturday, was rescheduled for Saturday, Dec. 19.

"We are disappointed that we will not be able to play today’s game against Florida State," Clemson athletic director Dan Radakovich said on Twitter. "Clemson has followed all of the ACC's protocols in preparation for this game."

Florida State head coach Mike Norvell also issued a statement Saturday morning:

“Our first priority is the health of our student-athletes, and I appreciate the protocols that have been put in place by FSU and the ACC to ensure everyone’s health while allowing us to play this season.

“It’s unfortunate that we will not have the opportunity to compete today, but we hope to be able to play Clemson in December. I am thankful for the support and coordination between our administration, Clemson, and the ACC office."
