The East Coast is preparing for Hurricane Florence to hit hard this week, and a state of emergency has been declared in South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia. ACC games at NC State and North Carolina have already been postponed, and Boston College and Wake Forest have moved their game up to Thursday night at 5:30pm. Other games around the college football landscape have also been moved, postponed, or cancelled as a result of the dangerous storm. The Virginia Cavaliers announced Tuesday (September 11) that Saturday’s matchup with the Ohio Bobcats will be moved to Nashville, Tennessee, a place the Cavaliers haven’t played since 1975. The game will be played at Vanderbilt Stadium and is scheduled for 4:30 PM Eastern. The game will be broadcast on the Virginia Sports Radio Network, but television broadcast plans are still in the works between ESPN and the ACC. Athletic Director Carla Williams emphasized the priority that UVA placed on safety in making the decision. “We look forward to returning to Scott Stadium for the Louisville game on Sept. 22,” she added. – Caroline Darney, streakingthelawn –  Read More
