Hurricane Florence is moving, postponing several college football games in Week 3

Hurricane Florence was downgraded to a Category 2 storm by the National Hurricane Center on Thursday morning, and it is bearing down on the east coast of the United States. Updated models showed the eye of the storm to make landfall near the North Carolina/South Carolina border, and head west into Georgia. Meteorologists are predicting Florence to weaken and sit over the east coast of the United States for a significant period of time, which could create major flooding. 

The severity of the storm and the time in which it is expected to make landfall is putting the status of several FBS football games in doubt for Week 3 of the season.

Here's a list of more games that could be affected (all times Eastern):
