Another Potential Hurricane Threatens Saturday's Florida State-Miami Game

Florida State vs. Miami has been postponed once already, and a brewing storm could threaten the ACC rivalry again, according to reports.

The game between the 'Canes and Seminoles was originally scheduled for September 16, but was bumped back due to Hurricane Irma.

A storm currently known as Tropical Depression No. 16 is making its way towards Florida, and could develop into Hurricane Nate by the weekend.

Both programs happened to share a bye this week. Attempting to reschedule the rivalry game a second time might not work out nearly as well. From Local 10 News:

Saturday's game is now in jeopardy due to what is currently Tropical Depression No. 16. The system is projected to become a Category 1 hurricane and move into the area near the Florida panhandle over the weekend.

"We are monitoring the situation and are in communication with both Florida State University and the Atlantic Coast Conference office," a university representative said.

The Hurricanes are currently 3-0 on the season, while Florida State just picked up its first win of the season against Wake Forest, and sits at 1-2. The game is scheduled to kick off at Doak Campbell Stadium at 3:30 p.m. ET.
