Buccaneers to host Bears Sunday following Hurricane Irma

Buccaneers to host Bears Sunday following Hurricane Irma”

"We have been working tirelessly with the Tampa Sports Authority, as well as the NFL league office, to ensure that Raymond James Stadium would be available to host our season opener against the Chicago Bears this Sunday".

Now the Hurricane Irma has come and gone, the stadium along with all of the Buccaneers facilities have been thoroughly assessed to determine the impact the storm has left along with the Bucs' game plan moving forward.

One day after Hurricane Irma ravaged much of Florida, the Glazer family, owners of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, announced that they will donate $1 million to the storm's relief efforts through the American Red Cross.

The game will be broadcast on Fox at 1 p.m. ET.

The news came minutes after a similar announcement that USF would be able to play host to IL (and former Bucs coach Lovie Smith) on Friday night in Tampa, welcome news after a week of games being postponed and canceled in anticipation of the hurricane.

According to the Bucs, there are a limited number of tickets still available for the game. The team's Raymond James Stadium was used as a staging area for first responders, but since the facility didn't suffer damage or lose power, this weekend's game will go on as scheduled. The game was initially set to occur at Miami's Hard Rock Stadium.

The Bucs game against the Miami Dolphins, which was postponed because of Irma, will now be played November 19, meaning both teams will play 16 consecutive weeks.

The Dolphins expect the Toledo-Miami (Fla.) college game, the next scheduled for Hard Rock Stadium, on September 23, to go on as scheduled.
