There were initial talks about moving the LSU-BYU game because of Hurricane Harvey and it looks like those talks have come to a fruitful end. SEC Network analyst Paul Finebaum has announced the new location of the game that was supposed to be played in Houston’s NRG Stadium.
It’s not too far of a move for the game itself and neither school really had any control over where the game would be as the game itself is a subsidiary of ESPN. The network made the call and so LSU will basically get a home game against BYU this coming Saturday. Like Finebaum said, the game will have the same kickoff as the original at 9:30 p.m.
