IU cancels game against FIU due to Hurricane Irma impact

IU cancels game against FIU due to Hurricane Irma impact”

Saturday's game between IN and Florida International has been canceled, IN athletic director Fred Glass announced Monday night. FIU canceled all athletics events through Sunday with Saturday's game in Bloomington included.

Late Monday night, after considering "significant logistical hurdles" with travel and the fact that several players and their families are from places in Florida affected by the hurricane, the decision was made to cancel the game. According to the release from IU, the teams plan to schedule a future game with each other in Bloomington.

"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 SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey.

Glass indicated that IN is working diligently to try and find an opponent to play at Memorial Stadium on October 7, the team's previously scheduled bye week.

"All involved with IU Athletics offer their thoughts and prayers to Florida International University and all who live in areas devastated by Hurricane Irma", Jeff Keag, IU's Senior Assistant Athletic Director for Media Relations, wrote in a press release. UCF's Week 2 game against Memphis was also canceled because of the storm, as were the Week 2 games for Miami, Florida, Florida State and USF.

The Hoosiers have a bye in Week 6 (weekend of October 7), and the football program is hopeful they can cobble together a game for that weekend.
