GREENSBORO, N.C. (WFXR) — The ACC announced on Monday night that the Virginia at Virginia Tech football game scheduled for Saturday, November 26, has been canceled.
According to a release, the decision was made after communication between the Atlantic Coast Conference, Virginia Tech and Virginia Athletic Department Administration.
The ACC said, “The ACC and Virginia Tech continue to support UVA following the devastating tragedy, which resulted in the deaths of three members of the Cavalier football team – Devin Chandler, Lavel Davis Jr. and D’Sean Perry, and injuries to students Mike Hollins (also a Virginia football student-athlete) and Marlee Morgan.”
This is the second straight game UVA has had to cancel in the wake of the Nov. 13 shooting. Virginia’s home finale against Coastal Carolina was also scrubbed.
The decision effectively ends both schools’ football seasons. Virginia Tech finishes the year 3-8 while UVA’s 2022 campaign ends with a 3-7 record.
