With Hurricane Dorian set to hit the state of Florida soon, several college football games are going to undergo some changes. We already know that Boise State vs. Florida State is going to see a change in kickoff time and venue, but two other games have been affected, too.

In a statement, ESPN announced that Boise State vs. Florida State will now take place on ESPNEWS. That game is already being moved from 7 p.m. to noon (EST), and will now be played in Tallahassee rather than Jacksonville.

The move has also led ESPN to move around two other games: Georgia at Vanderbilt will now take place on ESPN rather than the SEC Network. Additionally, Georgia Southern at LSU will now take place on the SEC Network instead of ESPNU.

Boise State vs. Florida State will move to noon ET on Saturday, with the game now being played on ESPNEWS and moving from Jacksonville to Tallahassee.

Due to this schedule change, No. 3 Georgia at Vanderbilt will move from SEC Network to ESPN, and Georgia Southern at No. 6 LSU will shift from ESPNU to SEC Network.

The crews working the three games will remain the same.

The National Hurricane Center recently updated Dorian to become a Category 4 hurricane by Monday. Whether it makes landfall in the state is unknown though.

Last year five games had to be cancelled due to Hurricane Florence in Florida. Several more were simply moved in preparation for the game.

It remains to be seen if any other games will be affected by the updating weather forecast.
