"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 teams were supposed to play at noon in Tallahassee.

"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", head coach Mike Norvell said. "Clemson has followed all of the ACC's protocol in preparation for this game".

"We listened to our medical folks and their assessment of the risk and we decided it wasn't safe to play today", Florida State athletic director David Coburn told the AP.

"We now look ahead to returning to action next week against Pitt for Senior Day and Military Appreciation Day at Memorial Stadium", Radakovich said in a statement.

Another person with knowledge of the decision told AP that Florida State officials were informed late Friday night that Clemson had an offensive lineman return a positive test earlier in the day. I am thankful for the support and coordination between our administration, Clemson and the ACC office.

Clemson's lone open date is December 12. However, Clemson has already paid the expenses for a trip to Tallahassee only to have the proverbial rug pulled out from underneath them. Other big games that were initially scheduled for this week but will not be played include Ole Miss at Texas A&M, Georgia Tech at Miami, Charlotte at Marshall, Texas at Kansas, Central Arkansas at Louisiana, Michigan State at Maryland, Wake Forest at Duke, Houston at SMU, Navy at South Florida, Arizona State at Colorado and Washington State at Stanford. One reason could be Florida State's health situation. That led Florida State to say it was not comfortable playing Saturday's game, the source said.
