Charlotte-FAU Game Postponed by Hurricane Matthew
MIAMI (AP) — The looming impact of powerful Hurricane Matthew has prompted Florida Atlantic to move its football game against Charlotte from Saturday to Sunday.
FAU made the announcement Thursday morning and cautioned that Sunday's reschedule date is tentative. Further assessments will be made once the storm clears South Florida, likely sometime on Friday.
Decisions were also likely to come Thursday regarding the status of No. 18 Florida's home game Saturday against LSU and Saturday night's Georgia at South Carolina game.
For now, No. 23 Florida State's game at No. 10 Miami is still on as scheduled for Saturday night. Officials from both schools say they are continuing to monitor developments and are discussing contingency plans.
Matthew is a Category 3 hurricane, packing top sustained winds up to 125 mph.
