Early Tuesday afternoon, NC State officially announced that this Saturday’s game would not be played, thanks to the expected arrival of Hurricane Florence.

Hurricane Florence, which was projected on Monday by meteorologists as a major US storm, should make landfall either Friday or Saturday. In all likelihood, Florence will be a Category 4 hurricane at that time, with sustained wind speeds at well over 100 miles per hour.
Ultimately, the two schools administrations were unable to agree on an alternative route to play the game, so it has been canceled. Further details about a potential make-up could follow, so stay tuned as we will keep you up to date on the latest information we receive on the matter.
