Florida State-Miami Postponed
And that includes the many sports teams, venues and events. Below is a rundown of changes in games, schedules, damage (if any) to venues and changes or cancelation of games.
• Florida-Tennessee. The SEC announced on Tuesday that this game will take place on Saturday in Gainesville. Kickoff is 3;30 ET.
• Tampa Bay Buccaneers-Chicago Bears. The Bucs’ game with the Bears in Tampa is being played on Sunday.
• South Florida- Illinois. South Florida, located in Tampa, will host the Illini as scheduled on Friday.
• Florida State-Miami. Even before Irma made landfall, this game was postponed by the ACC. Scheduled for this weekend, it has been rescheduled to Oct. 7. With the Sept. 9 game against Louisiana-Monroe canceled, this means the Seminoles will be going from its Labor Day Weekend loss to Alabama to it’s Sept. 23 matchup with N.C. State without having played a game. That’s three weeks.
• Georgia Tech at UCF. This game, scheduled for Saturday in Orlando, has been canceled.
• Florida International at Indiana. This game has been canceled due to travel logistics.
• Miami-Toledo. This game will take place on Sept. 23, with a kickoff at 3:30 p.m. The Hurricanes, who have not practiced since last Tuesday and do not know when they will practice again, canceled their game with Arkansas State, which had been set for Sept. 9.
• Marlins-Brewers. This Major League Baseball game set for Friday has been moved to Milwaukee. The retractable roof at Marlins Stadium sustained six percent damage. It was designed to withstand a hurricane and the stadium has been declared safe to use.
• Hard Rock Stadium. The home of the Hurricanes and the NFL’s Dolphins did not sustain any serious damage, even tho a tornado reportedly touched down in the area.
• Homestead-Miami Speedway. The season-ending NASCAR Ford Championship Weekend on Nov. 17-19 is unaffected by Irma.
