Central Florida, Maryland's next football opponent, calls off second straight game

Central Florida, Maryland's next football opponent, calls off second straight game

The cancellation ended speculation about what might actually take place, and leaves the Yellow Jackets with an 11-game regular-season schedule.

Instead of football, Spectrum Stadium and the area near it will be used to help aid recovery efforts. The Yellow Jackets next play at home against Pitt on September 23 in what will be their first ACC game.

The teams are looking for a way to reschedule the game.

In a statement released by the UCF Knights, about a thousand National Guard members and 250 vehicles are on campus to assist recovery efforts following Irma's destructive path through Central Florida.

After moving its scheduled home game with Alcorn State to Legion Field in Birmingham, Alabama, last weekend as Hurricane Irma approached, FIU has cancelled its scheduled road trip to in this weekend following its landfall Sunday night, the school announced Monday evening.

"We are in complete agreement with the decision to cancel Saturday's game", said Georgia Tech director of athletics Todd Stansbury, who served as UCF's A.D. from 2012-15.

Cabot Corp (NYSE:CBT) Rating Reaffirmed by Analysts at KeyBanc Today

The two teams also attempted to play the game at a later date, but neither team has a mutual bye week.

"We're honored to host the National Guard and play a part in helping our community and state recover from Irma", said Vice President and Director of Athletics Danny White.

UCF canceled all classes starting September 7 and closed campus the following day.

Additionally, with many UCF student-athletes away from school and spending time with family through the storm, it is unclear when the entire football roster would all be able to reconvene on campus, the school said. The university said it will not reopen for students until September 14.

The Knights were forced to cancel their game last week against Memphis after they tried to move the game up from Saturday to Friday. Additionally, the Miami vs. Florida State game originally scheduled for September 16 has been moved to October 7.
