Due to the threat of Hurricane Ian, one college football team along the coast will be moving its game time.

South Carolina will be moving its game to Thursday night, Sept. 29, at 7 p.m. ET from a Saturday afternoon kick.

Ray Tanner, South Carolina’s athletic director discussed the impact of Hurricane Ian ahead of South Carolina’s Week 5 game.

“Due to the potential impact of the hurricane on Columbia and the surrounding area, it is in the best interest of safety to play the game on Thursday rather than Saturday afternoon,” Tanner said. “I appreciate the cooperation of South Carolina State head coach Buddy Pough, the South Carolina State administration and the Southeastern Conference officials who worked closely to make the appropriate operational adjustments in order to accommodate this change in the schedule.”

The potential weather threat is currently being monitored by South Carolina’s officials to ensure a safe environment ahead of its game. The Gamecocks will be taking on SC State in Columbia at Williams Brice Stadium.

This contest is probably not the last one that will be impacted by the weather outlook for the week. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have already announced the team is evacuating the Tampa area with the status of hosting Sunday Night Football still up in the air.
