The decision to move the game to a later date means that Florida’s visit to College Station on Sept. 8 will be the season-opener for the Aggies. The Gators open the season Saturday at home against Bowling Green.
It will also be the SEC opener for both teams as well.
“Our primary concern was for the health and safety of the general public, students and fans of both institutions,” Louisiana Tech athletic director Bruce Van De Velde said. “It’s impossible to predict exactly what is going to happen throughout the state so we also wanted to be conscientious of the possible effects of his storm on residents throughout Louisiana.”
Both universities had an open date on Oct. 13 and kickoff will be announced at a later date.
