FSU-Miami on as scheduled after Tropical Storm Nate shifts track westward
The Florida State-Miami was already rescheduled once because of Hurricane Irma
Update: Florida State announced Thursday afternoon that, after monitoring the forecast, the home game vs. Miami will be played as scheduled at 3:30 p.m. ET.
Original story: Severe storms in hurricane season have derailed several college football games already. Florida State alone was forced to cancel its game against Louisiana-Monroe and postponed its game vs. Miami because of Hurricane Irma. As a result, Miami-FSU was moved to Saturday, Oct. 7.
That meeting could be in jeopardy depending on the path and speed of a storm that is making its way toward the United States.
Florida State is monitoring the path of a tropical depression that could develop into Tropical Storm Nate (maybe even a hurricane) this week and affect Saturday's game, which has a 3:30 p.m. ET kickoff.
"We are monitoring the tropical storm and will continue to do so throughout the week," an FSU official said in a statement to the Orlando Sentinel on Wednesday. Miami has not yet released a statement regarding the storm.
Here is the projected path of the storm. If it stays on course -- it's too early to know exactly which way it will go or how quickly -- it would reach the Tallahassee area by Sunday morning.
