As Hurricane Ian approaches the Gulf Coast of the United States, it’s already impacting this weekend’s slate of sports. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will practice in Miami ahead of Sunday’s home game against the Kansas City Chiefs, and now it looks like college football will be impacted, too.

According to Florida Gators insider Bob Redman, Florida is likely to move this weekend’s game against the Eastern Washington Eagles to Sunday due to Hurricane Ian’s current path and projections.

I [a]m hearing that it is likely the #Gators game with Eastern Washington will be moved to Sunday at noon,” Redman said in a Tweet on Tuesday morning.

While it looks like Florida will be one of the first teams making some schedule and logistical changes due to Hurricane Ian, it’s likely other teams will follow suit. Hurricane Ian is expected to hit the northwestern side of Florida on Wednesday afternoon. After it makes landfall, the storm is then projected to move up through Georgia and the Carolinas.

Because of the current Hurricane projections as well as the evacuations in the Tampa Bay and northern Florida areas, there’s a strong chance that practices and games are impacted throughout this week and weekend.
