Georgia Tech-Central Florida game officially canceled

Georgia Tech-Central Florida game officially canceled”

The two programs plan to schedule a game between the schools at memorial stadium at some point in the future.

Instead of football, Spectrum Stadium and the area near it will be used to help aid recovery efforts.

So, the UCF Knights and Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets will not play this weekend. The teams, American Athletic Conference and Atlantic Coast Conference explored rescheduling options. The school is hosting 1,000 members of the National Guard and 250 emergency vehicles.

Saturday's game against Central Florida in Orlando was canceled early Monday afternoon because of Hurricane Irma.

"We are in complete agreement with the decision", said Georgia Tech Athletic Directo Todd Stansbury, who served as UCF's A.D. from 2012-15.

UCF didn't play their game against Memphis this past weekend because of the hurricane, and the school has just one open date over the rest of the season - the weekend of October 28th.

According to sources, UCF's players were sent home last week before Hurricane Irma arrived in the U.S. Florida Gov. Rick Scott asked UCF to host the National Guard as part of the Hurricane Irma recovery effort. The school cancelled classes starting September 7 and likely won't open before the 14th.

Additionally, UCF released student-athletes to return home to be with their families during the hurricane, so the school does not know when the full football roster will be back together on campus. "We wish them the very best in their recovery efforts and look forward to meeting on the gridiron down the road".

"Now that the storm has passed through Gainesville, the University of Florida is working with local authorities to assess the effect of the storm on the campus and the Gainesville community, at the same time ensuring the appropriate security and local officials are available to host a game", said commissioner Greg Sankey.
