Due to the effects of Hurricane Irma, Florida State’s scheduled home game against Miami will be rescheduled for October 7th, the ACC confirmed Saturday evening.
Fortunately, the ’Noles and the ’Canes had the same off week this season making a rescheduled date easy to find.
Miami and Florida State both had their games cancelled this weekend with UM scheduled to hit the road to Arkansas State and FSU scheduled to play Louisiana-Monroe at home.
Additionally, Florida State’s campus will be closed through next Friday and Jimbo Fisher’s weekly press conference scheduled for Monday was postponed.
True freshman quarterback James Blackman will have to wait yet another week to make his collegiate starting debut. Florida State’s next scheduled game is on September 23rd at home vs. NC State.
Last year, the rivalry matchup was threatened with Hurricane Matthew’s vicinity to South Florida. The effects of Matthew caused the rescheduling of UF’s game vs. LSU, but the FSU at Miami game went on as planned.
On Friday, Miami assistant coach Manny Diaz said it will take a miracle for any games to be played in Florida next week. Hurricane Irma forced the cancellation of FSU’s, UF’s, UCF’s, USF’s and UM’s games scheduled for Week 2.
