The Seminoles have officially rescheduled their home opener.
Florida State’s home game against Louisiana-Monroe has been pushed up to noon ET. on Saturday, the school announced this morning.
The game, which was originally scheduled for 7 p.m. ET, was moved up due to Hurricane Irma.
The Seminoles are the third Florida school to change their schedule due to the storm. UCF moved its game to Friday night, while FIU canceled its weekend home game.
“We have moved the game time after consulting with a number of state agencies and based on the information we have on the potential impact on the state,” said FSU President John Thrasher. “The earlier start will give ULM the opportunity to travel safely after the game, and provide many of our fans a chance to come to the game and return home in time to make any necessary preparations.”
This weekend’s game will be the first starting test for new FSU quarterback James Blackman, who is replacing the injured Deondre Francois.
