UGA football game moved to noon Saturday as hurricane approaches

The University of Georgia Bulldogs football game against Middle Tennessee State has been moved to a noon kickoff time Saturday, Sept. 15.

The game, originally slated for a 7:15 p.m. start time, has been pushed up as Hurricane Florence threatens to bring heavy rains and winds to East and Northeast Georgia beginning Saturday afternoon or evening, according to the National Weather Service.

“After extensive evaluation involving the uncertainty of weather conditions on the east coast, and consideration of all constituencies involved including fans, support staff, and law enforcement, the Saturday Georgia-Middle Tennessee State game has been moved from 7:15 p.m. to a 12 noon kickoff in Sanford Stadium,” the University of Georgia Athletic Association said in a statement on Thursday, Sept. 13.  

The game will be televised on ESPN News, rather than ESPN2 as originally planned, and will stream live on the ESPN mobile app.
