Hurricane Wilma continues to affect the college football schedule

Oct. 20, 2005


MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - The game between No. 20 West Virginia and South Florida postponed because of Hurricane Wilma has been rescheduled for Dec. 3.

"There were many fans that we considered," Big East commissioner Michael Tranghese said Thursday. "Obviously, the safety of everyone is paramount. Also, there were travel concerns and the potential for missed class time. Our conclusion is that Dec. 3 is the best date for this game to be played."

The game had been set for Saturday in Tampa, Fla., but the Big East announced on Wednesday that it had been postponed. Wilma is expected to arrive with potentially devastating force in Florida this weekend.

A start time for the rescheduled game has not been set.
