USF seems to have made some final decisions on athletics events this weekend.

Here we go:

The football game in Hartford is now 10:30 a.m., which will allow the Bulls to get back safely and early to Tampa.

The game was going to be at noon anyway, so it’s not a big adjustment. Should be no BODY CLOCKS situation here.

As for all the other sports, they’re being shut down for the weekend:

TAMPA, Sept. 6, 2017 – Due to the potential risks of Hurricane Irma, USF Athletics has determined it is in the best interest of student-athletes, coaches, staff and fans to cancel previously scheduled events for later this week. Cancellations include the women's soccer home game against Mississippi State that was scheduled for Thursday and the volleyball program's USF Classic, which was set for Friday and Saturday on campus. Women's soccer's Sunday game against Florida in Gainesville also has been cancelled.

Additionally, the USF Cross country team will no longer travel and compete in the UNF Invitational this weekend. The Bulls will make-up the meet by joining and participating in the Asics Embry-Riddle Classic on Saturday, Sept. 16.

USF Athletics will keep everyone informed about plans on rescheduling these events for later in the season.

We’ll keep you updated if anything changes.
