Legion Field will also be hosting the Florida International and Alcorn State game on Friday night.

Irma is currently a Category 5 storm with sustained winds of 185mph as it starts to impact the islands in the Caribbean. Irma’s projected path has the storm eventually turning up the Florida coast, making its impacts on the U.S. as early as Saturday night.

Other schools impacted include Florida, Florida State, and South Florida, who have all changed the times on their games in preparation for the storm.

Irma is one of the strongest hurricanes ever recorded, matching the strength of Hurricane Allen in 1980 and Hurricane Wilma in 2005. Wilma is still the most intense Atlantic hurricane on record in terms of low pressure.
