As a result of the incoming category four hurricane Matthew, UCF and Tulane have agreed to postpone their game until Sunday, Nov. 5.
“Taking into account all the latest projections for Hurricane Matthew, we have to keep the safety of everyone involved in these events at the forefront of our decision-making,” UCF Vice President and Director of Athletics Danny White said. “We appreciate our friends at Tulane and Houston understanding and working with us through this situation. Commissioner Mike Aresco and the American Athletic Conference staff have been very helpful as well.”
Any tickets bought in preparation for the original Friday night game will be honored and usable for the make-up game on Nov. 5.
Football wasn’t the only sport to see cancelations and changes. In volleyball, UCF and Houston will now play at 2 p.m. on Friday at USF instead of at 4 p.m. here at UCF like it was originally scheduled. The Knights’ match with Tulane scheduled for Sunday at 1 p.m. is still going to happen at The Venue.
All other matches for the men’s and women’s soccer teams, women’s tennis team and cross country team are still scheduled to be played without changes at their designated times and locations.
