A Week 3 Game Has Been Rescheduled Due To Hurricane Florence

A general view of Coastal Carolina's football field.

Hurricane Florence's incoming path is expected to affect a lot of college football's Week 3 slate, as there are several games scheduled to be played in North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia this weekend.

Schools in the area are starting to make preparations for the hurricane. These preparations could include the rescheduling or postponing of games.

One school has already decided to make a move.

Coastal Carolina, which is set to play Campbell on Saturday, is moving its game up. It will now be played on Wednesday.

From the school:

In response to the impending arrival of Hurricane Florence, the Coastal Carolina home football game versus Campbell originally scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 15, in Conway, S.C., has been rescheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 12, at 2 p.m. ET at Barker-Lane Stadium in Buies Creek, N.C.

"Given the close proximity of our campuses and based on current available information regarding the storm, there was mutual interest in playing the game on Wednesday," said CCU Director of Athletics Matt Hogue. "Our team planned to relocate until the passing of the storm regardless, so moving the game to Buies Creek worked with that plan. The safety of our student-athletes, fans and event staff are of the utmost concern to Coastal Carolina University. We look forward to seeing all of our fans back at Brooks Stadium on Oct. 13 for Family Weekend."

Admission to the game on Wednesday afternoon will be free. All fans who purchased single-game tickets for this weekend's game can exchange those tickets for any remaining Coastal Carolina home football game this season. For questions or to exchange your tickets, contact the Chanticleer Athletics Ticket Office at 843-347-8499.
