Hurricane Gustav's Effect On LSU's Schedule

Bleacher ReportAnalyst ISeptember 6, 2008

Hurricane Gustav isn't much of a threat anymore but it is still affecting LSU's football game schedule. The game against Appalachian State was scheduled for last Saturday afternoon but the kickoff time was moved up to 10 a.m. (LSU won the game, 41-13).

Today, LSU Director of Athletics Joe Alleva announced that the LSU vs. Troy game will be postponed until Nov. 15 which is an open date for both teams.

Tickets for the original game which would've been played this week will still be valid when the game is played in November.

“The welfare of the people of Baton Rouge, the uncertain power issues facing all of us and the condition of Tiger Stadium were all factors in making this decision,” said Alleva. “We are fortunate that both schools had a common open date later in the year. I am appreciative of the cooperation of the good people at Troy for their understanding of this situation.”

Tigers Stadium suffered a lot of damage from Hurricane Gustav, which made landfall in Louisiana on Monday as a Category 2 hurricane.
