BOISE, Idaho — Saturday's Boise State game against Florida State is officially being moved to a new location and time because of Hurricane Dorian.
The storm has already led Florida Governor Ron DeSantis to declare a state of emergency. As of 11 a.m. ET on Thursday, Hurricane Dorian was holding steady with 85 mph winds in the Atlantic Ocean. But new forecast models project the storm could become a dangerous Category 4 hurricane before it reaches land.
The game will now be held at Doak Campbell Stadium in Tallahassee with a 10 a.m. MDT kickoff. It will be televised on ESPNNEWS.
Agents at Harmon Travel in Boise have been scrambling to answer calls from concerned BSU fans regarding changes in their travel arrangements. The agency has arranged for several buses to shuttle their customers from their hotels in Jacksonville to the game in Tallahassee, two and a half hours away. Other travelers may have to find their own transportation.

Your cheers will need to be even louder and more enthusiastic. Let’s go get ‘em, Broncos. https://t.co/JACDc7BR89?
