Hurricane Irma Blocks Arkansas State University-University Of Miami Football Game

Sep 6, 2017

Concern over the emerging Hurricane Irma storm system has lead to the cancellation of a college football game between the University of Miami and Arkansas State University. The Miami football squad, which is aptly named the Hurricanes, was to travel to Jonesboro for Saturday’s game against the Red Wolves.

The category 5 storm is not expected to arrive in Florida on Sunday or Monday. 

A reporter for the Associated Press says the game will not be able to be rescheduled.
