Hurricane Florence: Sporting events impacted by storm


As more than 1 million people evacuate areas of the East Coast ahead of Hurricane Florence’s anticipated arrival, college athletic departments and other sports leagues are evaluating whether or not to alter their schedules.

As of early Tuesday afternoon, four Football Bowl Subdivision games have been rescheduled or canceled due to Florence, a Category 4 storm. The North Carolina-UCF game has been canceled, while three others — Campbell vs. Coastal Carolina, Norfolk State vs. Liberty and Boston College vs. Wake Forest — have been rescheduled.

Here’s a list of the major sporting events that could be, or have already been, impacted by the coming storm, and where things stand as of Tuesday.
