ORLANDO, FL (WMC) - Memphis Tigers will not play football Saturday as planned. Instead, the team will play Friday.
Memphis was supposed to play UCF in Orlando, Florida, on Saturday at 7 p.m. Current forecasts suggest that is when Hurricane Irma (currently a Category 5 storm) will be moving through the Sunshine State.
With that information, UCF and Memphis agreed to move the game up to Friday, Sept. 8 at 6:30 p.m. EST.
ESPNU will still carry the game despite the schedule change.
In Week one, Harvey (then a tropical depression) soaked the Liberty Bowl as Memphis hosted Louisiana-Monroe. Memphis won that game 37-29.
