Seminoles cancel home opener because of Hurricane Irma

Florida State canceled its home football game Saturday against Louisiana-Monroe because of impending Hurricane Irma.

The cancellation Thursday night came after Florida Gov. Rick Scott ordered all state colleges and universities closed through Monday to support shelter and emergency relief efforts.

The teams do not have open dates on the same week, preventing them from rescheduling the game.

Florida State initially moved the start time for the game in Tallahassee from 7:30 p.m. to noon.

The Seminoles are scheduled to play No. 16 Miami in Tallahassee on Sept. 16.
