A Hurricane Could Cause Michigan's Game At Maryland To Be Played Under Different Circumstances

Hurricane Joaquin's path through the east coast of the United States.

Hurricane Joaquin

Hurricane Joaquin is coming and it might affect our college football Saturday. 

The storm, which is set to hit the Mid-Atlantic coast and possibly move inland on Friday, should at least bring heavy rain to the area. In a worst-case scenario, per the Washington Post, it could bring "dangerous, long-duration" flooding, "widespread damaging winds" and a significant "surge of water." 

The game that looks it could be affected most is Maryland's home contest against Michigan, which is scheduled to be played at 8 p.m. E.T. at Byrd Stadium in College Park, Md. The Big Ten Network was planning on broadcasting its pregame show from Maryland, but the storm has forced the network to cancel those plans. 

As of now, nothing regarding the game itself has changed, though the conference is monitoring the situation.
