Florida State-Miami game rescheduled for Oct. 7

Sep 10, 2017 - 12:52 AM The Atlantic Coast Conference announced Saturday that the Miami-Florida State game will be rescheduled to Oct. 7 because of the potential impact from Hurricane Irma.

The game was originally slated for Sept. 16 in Tallahassee, Fla. Earlier Saturday, Florida State announced its campus would be closed through next Friday.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone who is feeling the effects of Hurricane Irma," ACC Commissioner John Swofford said. "As important as football is to all of us, these kinds of events provide perspective when you're talking about life-threatening events and the aftermath ramifications.

"It quickly became clear that it was in the best interest of our players, coaches and fans to reschedule next week's Miami at Florida State game. Typically, it's not easy to reschedule games, but in this instance, there was a clear path to adjust quickly and effectively."

Additionally, the ACC also moved the Georgia Tech at Miami game to Oct. 14. The game was originally slated for Oct. 12 but was switched to abide by the league's scheduling parameter that requires teams playing on Thursday night to have equal or full rest.

"I appreciate the leadership at our schools and with our television partners as this process was seamless, and we were able to adjust in as fair a way as possible," Swofford said.

Florida State's next game is scheduled for Sept. 23 at home against North Carolina State. Miami's next game is slated for Sept. 23 at home against Toledo.
