Florida State's first game of the fall is currently scheduled for this Saturday. However, Hurricane Dorian could potentially impact the team's season opener.

The Seminoles are looking to put last season's shortcomings behind this weekend. Another year under Willie Taggart's belt should go a long way for the program.

Week 1 won't be easy for Florida State as it faces off against Boise State. Well, that is if the weather holds up for the game.

As of right now, the plan is for the Seminoles and Broncos to hold their season opener on Saturday. The next update for the status of the game will be available on Thursday morning.

Both the athletic department for Florida State and Boise State are monitoring the incoming weather.

Florida State released a statement, saying "We continue to be in contact with the Governor’s Office, our partners in Jacksonville, and Boise State’s athletics department. At this time there is no change in the status of the game."

Hurricane Dorian is projected to strike Florida this weekend, which could then cause trouble for the Seminoles. The fear would be that Jacksonville - the host site of the game - gets hit with tropical-storm-force winds.

It's still too early to tell, but this will be developing story to watch for the new few days.

Stay tuned for more updates on Florida State's season opener.
