Virginia is supposed to get pounded by snow this weekend. Northern Virginia and DC will be in a blizzard warning for much of the weekend, while the bulk of the rest of the state will be in a winter storm warning.

The ACC has announced that both the Virginia-Syracuse matchups and the Virginia-Wake Forest matchups will be postponed. Here's the full release:

Due to expected weather conditions in Charlottesville, the Syracuse at Virginia game, originally scheduled for Saturday, January 23 at noon, has been moved to Sunday, January 24 at 7:00 pm. The game will be televised on ESPN2.

In addition, the Virginia at Wake Forest game, originally scheduled for Monday, January 25 at 9:00 pm, has been moved to Tuesday, January 26 at 7:00 pm. The game will be broadcast on ESPN3.

Tipoff for the Virginia-Pitt women's basketball game, scheduled for 1:00 p.m., also at John Paul Jones Arena, will not be affected by the schedule change.

Here is some additional information from VirginiaSports.com:

The Virginia-Duke wrestling dual meet scheduled for Friday (Jan. 22) has been postponed to Friday, Feb. 5, at 7 p.m. at Memorial Gym.

The women's tennis matches involving Virginia, BYU, Columbia, and Maryland will be played Friday (Jan. 22) and Saturday (Jan. 23) at Boar's Head Sports Club. The men's and women's tennis Meet the Team Day, scheduled to be held on Sunday (Jan. 24) at the Boar's Head Sports Club, has been canceled.
