Luavul moved from Nov. 7 to 14. No other game was going to potentially move

to November 14.

Presuming we would have been able to play this Saturday (November 7), and we wouldn't know that for certain until receiving testing results later this week, there is now potential for an outbreak next week which could interrupt the re-scheduled Luavul game (and previously would've only affected a bye week).

VPI re-scheduling to Dec. 12 does use up an alternate date which at this point could still have been used for the Luavul, BC, or Free Shoes U game, but any one of those three games needing the date wouldn't be any different than the VPI game needing that date. Essentially, VPI got first dibs on our final open Saturday.

Gobblers got NC state without Leary (for the most part), Luavul without a boatload of DLs. They have faced Cheatolina and a couple of others without a boatload of gobbler DBs, and have played without QB1 (though their QB2/3 didn't perform worlds away from their QB1).

Presumably the ACC (suppress skepticism) scrutinizes postponement requests to assure no gaming of the system. The Luavul program allegedly has increased Covid-19 problems this week versus last, largely from staff which interact with much of the team ... and they may not know how many more will test positive by Saturday. The game is far from certain to be played Nov. 14.

Note: Sooths in the NRV Polytechnic Corridor predicted that postponement requests from Cville would follow two weeks after theirs in mid-September due to UVA starting school a couple of weeks later than VPI.
