It's Hurricane season and this year is going to be a doozie. Hurricane Florence has upgraded to a category four hurricane that's expected to hit the southeast this week. And it's going to take down college football along the way.
The storm's projected trajectory has put college football programs on high alert to make plans to adjust their game schedule, or worse, cancel their Saturday kickoff.

Spanning from North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia, a total of 22 college football games are in the path of the hurricane. All three states have declared a state of emergency in anticipation of the storm's impact.
FBS college football games in Hurricane Florence's path this week— Brad Crawford (@BCrawford247) September 10, 2018
BC at Wake (Thurs)
Marshall at SC
Ga. Southern at Clemson
West Va. at NC State
UCF at UNC
ECU at Va. Tech
Ohio at Virginia
SMiss at App St
Norfolk St at Liberty
Campbell at Coastal
As of this writing, only Campbell vs. Coastal Carolina has made a decision to change their game time from 7 p.m. ET Saturday to 2 p.m. ET Wednesday at Campbell.
For the 22 games in the storm's path, postponing the game would be a safer bet than cancelling. Hurricane Irma would impact team's chances of making the postseason, so hopefully, Hurricane Florence doesn't have the same disastrous impact.
