The Saturday opener for Florida State football against Boise State has been moved due to Hurricane Dorian, a situation we’ve been watching closely for the last few days. Governor Ron DeSantis officially announced the game, originally scheduled for 7 PM on Saturday, August 31st, will be kicking off in Tallahassee instead of Jacksonville.

Multiple sources have confirmed that the game will move to Tallahassee with indications pointing toward a noon kickoff.It looks like it’ll be broadcast on ESPN News.

Tomahawk Nation has been bringing you updates on our Dorian Tracker, and unfortunately the final update is not a good one. Dorian will be a major hurricane that looks likely to make landfall on the eastern coast of Florida.

A major hurricane can be devastating, and people in the affected areas need to be able to evacuate safely - including those who had been planning to attend the game. Because of this, it was necessary for Jacksonville, the State of Florida and FSU to heed the meteorological warnings and move the game to Tallahassee.

Jacksonville is the crossroads of I-10 and I-95, and will be an area through which many Floridians pass through as they evacuate ahead of hurricane Dorian.

Stay safe, everyone.
