Florida moves Saturday's kickoff to noon because of Hurricane Irma

Preparing for Irma

The University of Florida versus Northern Colorado football game Saturday is scheduled to kick off earlier than originally planned with Hurricane Irma looming.

"With tropical conditions possibly expected in our region on Saturday night or Sunday morning, moving the game from 7:30 to noon will give people a chance to come to the game and return home before any expected weather or effects hit our area", Stricklin said.

Florida vs. Northern Colorado can be streamed on SEC Network Plus and the ESPN App.

Last year, it was Hurricane Matthew, which threatened Florida as a major hurricane and prompted the Gators to postpone their scheduled home game against LSU.

"We have moved the game time after consulting with a number of state agencies and based on the information we have on the potential impact on the state", Thrasher said.

20th-ranked Florida opened the season with a 33-17 loss to now No. 8 MI at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Colorado firefighters typically sacrifice for their home state, but with plenty of disasters across the country, they're sacrificing even more to travel to affected states. The game will still be played at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium in Gainesville.

Coach Jim McElwain said Thursday that the Gators have made their team hotel available for evacuees. He noted that the team has given up its usual home-game hotel to offer shelter during the storm. That led to an acrimonious dispute, the rescheduling of the game for Baton Rouge in November and a memorable Florida victory on a late goal-line stand.
