Florida, FSU officials still undecided on re-scheduling games

Florida, FSU officials still undecided on re-scheduling games”

The Florida Gators moved their game from 7:30 pm ET kickoff to noon on Saturday because of Hurricane Irma.

For now, the University has not cancelled any classes, but continues to actively monitor the progression of Irma.

Because of the change, Florida's game will be exclusively streamed, not on TV, according to the SEC's Chuck Dunlap, and fans probably won't be too happy with that change.

Gainesville is well within the cone of uncertainty of the National Hurricane Center's forecast, and some forecast models Tuesday night took the center of the Category 5 hurricane directly over the city early next week after making landfall down state. The game will still be shown on ACC Network. Eastern Kentucky in that window (Ole Miss vs. UT-Martin is set to air on the SEC Network alternate channel).

UF coach Jim McElwain said on the weekly SEC teleconference that te team has given up its hotel rooms to potential evacuees. The team gave up its Friday night hotel stay so that the building could be used as a shelter for those fleeing the storm.

Last year, it was Hurricane Matthew, which threatened Florida as a major hurricane and prompted the Gators to postpone their scheduled home game against LSU.

The University of Central Florida has already moved its AAC opener at home against Memphis to Friday at 6:30 p.m. Miami is playing at Arkansas State. That led to an acrimonious dispute, the rescheduling of the game for Baton Rouge in November and a memorable Florida victory on a late goal-line stand.

In an official release from the university, Florida State president John Thrasher announced the decision to move up the start time of the game.
