Originally, the Vanderbilt vs. NC State game had been scheduled for 1 p.m. CT.
The NCAA tweeted that at 1:20 p.m. CT "Game 11 will start play at 2:07 pm local time on ESPN2"
What was the reason for the College World Series delay?
NC State issued a tweet at 1:31 PM CT stating that "Several players from this team have been placed into COVID-19 protocol, and will not be available for today's match." The NCAA, NC State and other appropriate parties are monitoring the situation together.

They kept delaying, delaying, and then they took some players out of their dugout, and delaying, delaying, and delaying again."
Here's the NCAA's initial tweet about the game being delayed. It reads: #CWS GAME UPDATE. This is due to safety and health protocols. Start time to be determined
