Game Reset

West Virginia's football game with South Florida has been rescheduled.

After consultation with both universities, the football game between West Virginia University and the University of South Florida, originally scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 22, has been re-scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 3, Big East Commissioner Michael Tranghese announced.

The kickoff time for the new date has not been determined. At this time, no television arrangements have been made.

"There were many factors that we considered," said Tranghese. "Obviously, the safety of everyone is paramount. Also, there were travel concerns and the potential for missed class time. Our conclusion is that Dec. 3 is the best date for this game to be played."

That decision fits West Virginia's schedule better, giving the Mountaineers 17 days off between the Lousivlle and Connecticut games. WVU had played seven consecutive games to start the season.

The game, originally set to be played on Sat., Oct. 22, was postponed in anticipation of the landfall of Hurricane Wilma. Forecasts now put the eye of the storm coming ashore sometime late Sunday or early Monday. However, the effects of the storm are expected to be felt as much as a day in advance of landfall of the eye.
