Florida State and Wake Still Scheduled For Saturday

Florida State and Wake is still scheduled for Saturday despite concerns about weather.

The Florida State-Wake Forest game was up in the air due to weather concerns about hurricane Joaquin as it makes its way up the Atlantic. Wake Forest issued a statement that the game will still go on as normal.

Here is their statement:

"Wake Forest’s home game with Florida State on Saturday, Oct. 3 at BB&T Field is still on to be played as scheduled. The contest is set to kickoff at 3:30 pm and will be televised nationally by ESPN.

The weather forecast for Saturday includes a better than 50 percent chance of rain and a high in the 60s.

Rain will not affect whether Saturday’s game is played. The only current possible weather component that could cause a delay would be lightning. The NCAA has a protocol in place that each institution must follow in order to protect the safety of the student-athletes and those attending the contest.

According to Corey Jenkins, Wake Forest’s assistant athletic director for events, facilities and operations, the FieldTurf playing surface at BB&T Field will drain up to 10 inches of water per hour."
