UPDATE: WVU and NC State cancel Saturday’s matchup

UPDATE: The game between NC State and West Virginia has been cancelled, school officials have confirmed.


Original story:

Sources tell PTC staff that Saturday’s matchup between West Virginia and North Carolina State is “being discussed by both schools for a potential rescheduling due to Hurricane Florence.”

According to the information given to Par The Course, there’s “absolutely no chance” of a football game being played anywhere in the state of North Carolina on Saturday if “Hurricane Florence stays the course that it’s on”.

Kickoff between WVU and NC State is slated for 3:30pm est.

Early Monday, North Carolina State cancelled all classes from 5:00pm Wednesday to 5:00pm Sunday.

Florence is expected to reach the coast on Thursday, which brings a number of scheduled games into question. Evacuations have already been ordered for the South Carolina coast, while Coastal Carolina and East Carolina has canceled classes from Tuesday through the end of the week.
