Florida State game moved from Jacksonville ahead of Hurricane Dorian
Game will be played in Tallahassee
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Florida State University's season opening game against Boise State will still go on, just at a different venue.
Gov. Ron DeSantis announced Thursday that Saturday's game will be moved from Jacksonville to Tallahassee due to Hurricane Dorian. Kickoff is scheduled for noon.
Hugh Tomlinson, who works for Seminole Boosters, wrote in a Facebook post that Jacksonville tickets will be refunded and it will be general admission at Doak Campbell Stadium. An official statement is forthcoming.
The 11 a.m. track for Hurricane Dorian shows Jacksonville and much of the state in the cone of uncertainty.
