Following suit with much of the rest of Florida, Florida State is expected to announce that its game against Louisiana-Monroe, originally scheduled for a 7 p.m. kickoff on Saturday, will be moved up nearly seven hours to Saturday afternoon at 12:15 p.m. due to Hurricane Irma bearing down on the state.

In addition to FSU’s plans, UCF moved its matchup with Memphis up to Friday from Saturday, along with many high schools in South Florida.

Miami opted to cancel its road game against Arkansas State, possibly due to travel concerns.

Irma, which has reached unprecedented wind speeds of 185 miles per hour in its approach to the United States, is a storm unlike any seen before and caused mandatory evacuations of Key West on Tuesday.

What makes Irma so hard to project is that, as recently as Wednesday, forecasts have the eye ranging from anywhere on the east coast of Florida all the way to the west coast despite the fact that it is expected to make landfall in Florida early Sunday morning.

Stay tuned to Tomahawk Nation for any further updates about Irma and how it will affect Tallahassee this weekend and beyond.
