Still going on as planned, Saturday’s football game has not been moved nor changed.
Though no official announcement has been made, and with no change to the 7 p.m. game time, the USF and West Virginia athletic departments have been talking on the phone twice a day in the event that Hurricane Wilma affects the game.
Wilma became a hurricane early Tuesday afternoon, and tracking maps have the storm arriving just off the coast of Naples at 2 p.m. Saturday.
However, if the storm does affect the game, both the Bulls and the Mountaineers would probably prefer the game to be moved to Monday, because both teams do not play Saturday, Oct. 29.
West Virginia coach Rich Rodriguez hopes he knows the weather forecast sooner than later.
Throughout his career he knows the dangers of a wet football and the Florida humidity.
“We’ll have a game plan in case it rains hard,” the fifth-year coach told the Associated Press, “because that will change what you do offensively.”

Coach Brian Gregory said Tuesday the Bulls didn’t play complete, 40-minute games in their two losses last week. It’s debatable if they did Wednesday night against East Carolina (11-18, 5-11) at the Yuengling Center, but it was more than enough to put up a 73-68 overtime win. “It’s funny. There were stretches where we played […]
