The University of Virginia vs. Virginia Tech football game that was originally scheduled for this Saturday has been canceled, according to officials from the Atlantic Coast Conference.
The ACC says this decision was made after talks with Conference officials and both the Cavaliers and Hokies Athletic Departments in light of the recent shooting on the UVA campus that killed three football players and injured two others.
Statement from the ACC:
The Virginia at Virginia Tech football game scheduled for Saturday, November 26, has been cancelled. The decision was made following communication between the Atlantic Coast Conference, Virginia and Virginia Tech athletic department administration.
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.
