Miami Game Against A-State Canceled as Hurricane Irma nears Florida

Naples Fla

But due to Irma and its likely affect on the Miami team trying to return home from Jonesboro, Arkansas, the game has been canceled.

The A-State Red Wolves won't be playing the University of Miami Hurricanes as planned on Saturday.

Concerns over the team and officials traveling back to South Florida was the main reason for the cancellation. "We are comforted in knowing that our community is strong and will come together, if needed, to recover from the storm". Peter Ariz of the Miami Herald reported the Canes were concerned about returning home following the contest with the storm possibly hitting Florida this weekend.

The game will not be rescheduled as there are no available dates for both teams during the rest of the season.

The Hurricanes (1-0) will return to the field September 16 against Florida State in Tallahassee.

Hurricane Irma has prompted Miami to cancel its road trip this week to Arkansas State.

Florida International's home game with Alcorn State, scheduled for Saturday night, will not be played in Miami - and the teams were working Wednesday on a plan to meet at a neutral site on Friday. The Red Wolves will return to action September 16 against Arkansas-Pine Bluff in what will now serve as the team's home opener at Centennial Bank Stadium.
