Due to Irma’s projected path, this weekend’s game between No. 16 Miami and No. 10 Florida State has been canceled. Indiana and Virginia will face off in place of that game.

Louisiana-Monroe and No. 10 Florida State has also been impacted by Irma.  It has been pushed up to a noon start time Saturday as a non-exclusive game on ACC Network Extra.

Northern Colorado and No. 22 Florida has also been impacted by Irma.  It has been moved to noon Saturday and will be streamed exclusively on the SEC Network+.  Along with that move, Chattanooga at No. 12 LSU has been moved from SEC Network Alternate to SEC Network.

The last of the games currently affected by Irma is Saturday’s game between New Hampshire at Georgia Southern.  That game has been moved to a 4 p.m. start time and will be played at Legion Field in Birmingham, Alabama.  It will be broadcast live on ESPN3.
