The sudden delay is a product of the environment schools and conferences have accepted in order to proceed with fall sports competition amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Syracuse football is tested three times per week, in accordance with ACC protocol, and undergoes third-party testing on Friday. Those tests are shipped to a lab in North Carolina. Results are returned before the start of the game.
