UCF-Tulane Football Game Rescheduled for Friday Evening
Oct. 19, 2005
Due to the impending threat of Hurricane Wilma to the state of Florida, UCF Director of Athletics Steve Orsini announced today that this weekend's football game between UCF and Tulane will be played Friday, Oct. 21 at 7 p.m. in the Florida Citrus Bowl. The game was originally scheduled for Saturday, but UCF and Tulane, in consultation with Conference USA, agreed to the schedule change after reviewing the latest storm projections.
"To ensure the safety of the student-athletes, fans, alumni and game workers, it is in the best interest of everyone that we move the game," stated Orsini. "Moving the contest to Friday should give everyone involved with the game plenty of time to return home safely."
Television coverage on CSTV's All-Access package will be announced later today by CSTV.
Ticket information will be released later today or tomorrow morning for fans who are unable to attend the game Friday.
740-The Team will broadcast the game live, with pregame coverage beginning at 5 p.m. UCFathletics.com also has the broadcast along with live gametracker statistics.
