ORLANDO, Fla. - The University of Central Florida football game against Stanford is still on as officials monitor a disturbance near the Bahamas, according to a UCF Athletic Department spokesperson.

The school is monitoring the storm constantly and going through all the protocols to keep up.

School officials expect the sold-out game to kick off at 3:30 p.m. Saturday as planned.

UCF police Chief Carl Metzger recommended attendees bring a poncho or rain jacket. Umbrellas are not permitted in Spectrum Stadium.

In the first two games of the season, UCF defeated Florida A&M 62-0 and beat Florida Atlantic 48-14.

Stanford started the year with a 17-7 win against Northwestern, but lost 45-20 against USC this past Saturday.

The Knights come into the game as the No. 17 team in the country.

UCF is a 7-point Las Vegas favorite.
