Florida game postponed due to Hurricane Matthew

LSU-Florida game postponed

If you're keeping score at home, that means LSU would lose a home game, the revenue associated with it and would have to play three road SEC games in 13 days. The Heat won 106-95. Gov. Nikki Haley an.

The SEC postponed the game scheduled for Saturday because of Hurricane Matthew, which was bearing down Thursday on Florida's east coast.

The Florida Panthers, who play home games in Sunrise - directly in the storm's predicted path - were able to practice Thursday morning, and coach Gerard Gallant said he and his wife would ride the storm out in their condo near Fort Lauderdale. Miami and Florida State were continuing to monitor developments and discussing contingencies, just in case.

Rather than dwell on the defeat, which Lock said can allow doubt to creep to in, he intends to learn from it, work to correct the mistakes made and seek to improve in practice for MU's next game October 15 at Florida.

The Presbyterian game has a buyout of about $500,000, and the South Alabama buyout is about $1.5 million.

"At the end of the day it boils down to, 'What are we trying to do here?'" he said.

The schools do not have a common open date on which to reschedule the game. Play the game in Baton Rouge or play it on the moon, I don't care. I just felt like I let them down with the news.

A Saturday night start or even a Sunday kickoff have been rumored as possibilities, but there has been no official word from officials at Florida, LSU or the SEC.

In Davie, Florida - where a hurricane warning was posted - the Miami Dolphins made a decision to close their offices on Thursday, which was already an off day for players.

For months, Sanders has been urging his supporters to back Clinton, but polls show not all of them are listening. The party, so far, has been snubbed after sticking its neck out for Sanders during the presidential primary.

The Dolphins are still scheduled to host Tennessee Sunday afternoon, but the teams are monitoring conditions. How they get to Atlanta though is something Orgeron's not anxious about. "That's No. 1 for me".

The leadership of the University of Florida, on the other hand, purposely drug their feet regarding this game and succeeded increasing their odds to win the SEC East by skating a hard game in which they would have likely been forced to start multiple backups, while securing the maximum possible financial gain for their athletic department. "Believe it or not, and I know some people will disagree with this, but there are some pretty important things out there in life that don't concern third-and-6, you know?"

"We were willing to go there, and we had a plane". "The scenarios down the road would require some serious changes in schedule". LSU would have to give up its home game against South Alabama, and Florida would have to ditch Presbyterian to put the Tigers on the schedule.

FGCU's men's basketball team plans to practice elsewhere Saturday.

Further up the Florida peninsula, the University of Central Florida announced its scheduled weekend game against Tulane would be postponed to November 5. Florida leads the SEC in scoring defense, allowing 11.6 points a game.

A number of college volleyball and soccer matches from Florida to North Carolina were rescheduled or moved.

The University of North Florida, located in Jacksonville, said its cross-country teams would not travel to Tallahassee for a meet at Florida State on Friday.

In a press release, the university noted that the hurricane is "expected to sideswipe Thursday and into Friday", meaning the significant weather event should have cleared the area by kickoff 8:18 ET Saturday night.

Alleva said there was "frustration" on his part in the dealings and that he did everything he could to get the game played.
