South Carolina announced Wednesday afternoon that their game vs. Marshall this Saturday has been canceled due to Hurricane Florence approaching the region.
COLUMBIA, S.C. – In light of the shifting forecast and probable path of Hurricane Florence, the University of South Carolina has canceled the football game versus Marshall that was scheduled to be played Saturday evening at 7:30. The Gamecocks will look for an opportunity to play a 12th regular season game later this season.
"Whether or not the game could have been played, we made the decision we think is best for the state and those who are evacuating the coast," said Gamecock Athletics Director Ray Tanner. "There is no question this is the right thing to do and the decision was supported by President Pastides, Coach Muschamp, our Board members and myself."
