Two major Week 3 college football games have now been cancelled in anticipation of the incoming Hurricane Florence. Both of these games include ACC teams.

North Carolina announced earlier today that its game against UCF is being cancelled. The Tar Heels say it's unlikely the game will be rescheduled.

N.C. State has also now announced that its game against West Virginia is being cancelled.

"Due to the increasing likelihood of severe and unsafe conditions associated with Hurricane Florence, our game with West Virginia will not be played this weekend," NC State announced.

From NC State:

Emergency management resources are expected to be fully utilized and needed throughout the region, and today's decision will help give ample time to deploy those resources across the state.

NC State has worked in partnership with University leadership, West Virginia University officials, the Atlantic Coast Conference and emergency management personnel to arrive at a decision in the best interests of the safety and well-being of fans, student-athletes and all parties involved.

Should this game be rescheduled or a replacement home game be scheduled, tickets for the West Virginia game will be valid. If this game or a replacement home game is not viable, a refund will be offered to season ticket holders. Details will be communicated at a later date.

Stay tuned for more details.
