TALLAHASSEE, Florida (AP) — Florida State coach Mike Norvell is standing by the decision to postpone the Seminoles game Saturday against No. 4 Clemson after the Tigers reported a positive player test following their arrival on campus, adding that even though he and his team wanted to play there were safety concerns.
“We believe the right decision was made,” Norevell said on Monday.
The game was called off a few hours before kickoff Saturday when medical teams from both schools could not agree that it was safe to play.
Clemson offered Florida State an additional round of testing and delaying the start until later Saturday, or even Sunday or Monday.
Norvell expects the teams will meet at Florida State on Dec. 12.
In a response to Swinney’s comments on expenses, the Florida State coach said If Clemson needs donations to make up the trip’s cost so the game is played at Florida State, “then I’ll sign up to make one.”
