Hurricane Florence is coming and it's expected to affect much of college football's Week 3 slate. One major game has already been cancelled.

North Carolina announced this afternoon that its game against UCF has been cancelled.

UCF released the following statement on Twitter:

"Due to Hurricane Florence, our game at UNC this weekend has been canceled. UNC and UCF will continue to discuss the feasibility of playing the game at a later date this season," the school announced.

Hurricane Florence is expected to hit the Carolinas and Virginia the hardest. There are several games in the area that are going to be affected by it. Rescheduling this game is a possibility, of course, but UCF says it is unlikely: "It is unlikely the Knights will be able to replace the UNC contest with another game as the Knights don’t have a true open date. Oct. 13 at Memphis Oct. 20 at ECU Nov. 1 vs. Temple (Thursday)," they tweeted.

Refunds for the UNC-UCF game will be given out automatically:

"North Carolina and UCF officials stated any tickets purchased through the respective school will be refunded automatically and as quickly as possible. There is no need to contact either school’s ticket office regarding refunds," the schools announced.
