Florida State considering rescheduling canceled game with Louisiana-Monroe


The Florida State athletic department confirmed it’s considering rescheduling their canceled game with Louisiana-Monroe. Both schools have discussed playing the game on the first weekend in December, which coincidently is the same weekend as the ACC Championship game.

“We have been in contact with ULM, and we continue to explore options,” Florida State’s associate athletic director Rob Wilson said to ESPN writer David M. Hale reported by Palm Beach Post writer Alex Makrides, “Currently that would be our only possible date if we were to make up the game this year.”

All of this talk is depended upon the Seminoles not winning the ACC’s Atlantic Division, as the football program is exploring for options in becoming bowl eligible this season. Currently, FSU is 0-2, with key conference games against Wake Forest, Clemson, Louisville, and Miami remaining on their schedule.

The Sept. 9 game against Louisiana-Monroe was canceled due to the threat of Hurricane Irma hitting the Tallahassee area.
