UNC-UCF, NC State-West Virginia Football Games Cancelled Due To Hurricane Florence, Other Games Rescheduled

Hurricane Florence has become such a dangerous storm that it has forced several college football games to be rescheduled or cancelled.

weekend Football Games Called Off Due To Hurricane Florence

Among the games set for this Saturday that were cancelled on Tuesday are the University of Central Florida-North Carolina matchup and the NC State-West Virginia contest.

As of Tuesday morning, Florence was still labeled as a Category 4 storm — after starting out as a Category 3 hurricane in the Carolinas last week — although the National Hurricane Center said it could potentially turn into a Category 5 disaster later this week.

Last year, dozens of storms including Hurricane Harvey in Houston, Texas and Hurricane Irma in Florida destroyed many homes and left many Americans destitute.

Since Florence began its course, evacuations and emergency safety measures have been implemented in many Mid-Atlantic states like the Carolinas and Virginia.

On Tuesday, Wake Forest announced that its Thursday night home matchup against Boston College would be rescheduled to 5:30 p.m. EST from 7:30 p.m. due to the imminent storm. ESPN is still set to broadcast the game.

Other colleges and universities have also postponed or changed the location of their football games or other athletic activities this week because of the hurricane. Virginia was scheduled to host Ohio on Saturday, although that game will now be held at Vanderbilt’s stadium in Nashville, Tennessee.
