Saturday’s Homecoming game rescheduled to end of the season

Saturday’s Homecoming game between USF and No. 20 West Virginia has been rescheduled for Dec. 3.

No game time has been announced nor have any television arrangements been made.

On Wednesday, the league announced that the game was postponed due to concerns about Hurricane Wilma.

In a released statement, Big East Commissioner Michael Tranghese said, “There were many factors that we considered. Obviously, the safety of everyone is paramount. Also, there were travel concerns and the potential for missed class time. Our conclusion is that Dec. 3 is the best date for this game to be played.”

The Bulls aren’t the only college football team affected by Wilma.

The game between No. 7 Miami vs. Georgia Tech was postponed to Nov. 19 and the UCF vs. Tulane game was moved to tonight.

While the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are on a bye week, the Miami Dolphins game with the Kansas City Chiefs will also be played tonight at 7.

This isn’t the first time a hurricane has affected a Bulls game.

Last season, Hurricane Frances postponed the Sept. 4 USF vs. Pittsburgh game to Dec. 4, in which the Panthers won 43-14.
