Hurricane Florence's projected path.

Virginia and the Carolinas appear to be in significant danger from Hurricane Florence, upgraded to a category 4 hurricane Monday. According to the National Hurricane Center, hurricane-force winds could make landfall as soon as Wednesday night, and a wide area centered on Virginia and North and South Carolina faces dangers from winds and flooding. That’s already having a drastic effect on scheduled college football games, and there may be more to come. First, the projected map:

Football Scoop has a thorough list of the major college football games that could possibly be affected by this. Here are some that have already been changed or cancelled and of their planned or actual broadcasters):

Wednesday, Sept. 13: Campbell at Coastal Carolina; originally scheduled for Saturday, has been moved to 2 p.m. ET Wednesday at Campbell. Originally set for ESPN3, no word on if that’s changed.

Thursday, Sept. 14:

Boston College at Wake Forest: moved up from 7:30 p.m. ET to 5:30 p.m. ET, still on ESPN.

Robert Morris at James Madison (Madizone HD Sportsnet streaming): moved from Saturday to Thursday at 7 p.m. ET.

Saturday, Sept. 16: 

No. 18 UCF at North Carolina (ESPNU): cancelled, makeup TBD.

Other key games to keep an eye on are Ohio at Virginia (3 p.m. ET Saturday, ACC Network Extra), which reportedly could move to Nashville, Georgia Southern at No. 2 Clemson (3:30 p.m. ET Saturday, ESPN2), and East Carolina at No. 13 Virginia Tech (12:20 p.m. ET Saturday, ACC Network). There’s no word on if there will be changes to the latter two yet, or to a number of other smaller schools’ games. We’ll update this post as more information comes in. Meanwhile, some, like CBS’ Danny Kanell, are already complaining about these games being cancelled:

Kanell got thoroughly dunked on for that one:

We’ll see if anyone else drops hurricane takes, too.
