New date announced for Creighton’s home game against Georgetown

Jon Nyatawa looks at the long break for the Bluejays after COVID issues with opponents canceled two games.

The Big East announced Saturday that it has found a new date for Creighton's home game against Georgetown.

The two teams are now set to play at 8 p.m. Feb. 14 in Omaha — two days after a previously scheduled game between the same two squads in Washington, D.C.

So the Jays and Hoyas could play twice in three days, if the updated schedule holds.

The first game of the season between these two teams — originally set for Dec. 28 — was called off due to COVID issues within the Georgetown program.

The Big East's policy is for the league to try its best to find makeup dates for any games postponed because of COVID. It announced earlier this week that Creighton's road game at DePaul — previously postponed on Dec. 20 — will now be played on Feb. 17.

As a result of the league's recent rescheduling decisions, the Jays have lost their bye week in mid-February.

Creighton's original slate featured a seven-day break between a road trip to Georgetown (Feb. 12) and a home game against Marquette (Feb. 20).

Now, the plan for CU is to play twice within that stretch.

It is quite possible that more scheduling adjustments will be needed down the road. Five different Big East teams already have been forced to postpone games due to COVID protocols.

The Jays will play their first game in more than two weeks Saturday when they travel to play at Marquette.

Creighton's updated February schedule:

Feb. 1: at UConn

Feb. 4: at Seton Hall

Feb. 8: Butler

Feb. 12: at Georgetown

Feb. 14: Georgetown

Feb. 17: at DePaul

Feb. 20: Marquette

Feb. 23: at St. John's

Feb. 26: at Providence
