This weekend's college football slate got a little lighter.
With hurricane Florence currently heading towards the coast of North Carolina and expected to be the most catastrophic storm to hit the region in decades, Saturday's West Virginia-NC State and UCF-North Carolina have been cancelled.
#Florence could produce life-threatening, catastrophic flash flooding & significant river flooding over portions of the Carolinas and Mid-Atlantic states from late this week into early next week.

No makeup date for the games has been set, but according to ESPN, all four schools are looking into options for rescheduling the game or searching for replacement games.
(UNC and UCF) are looking at the feasibility of rescheduling for this season but that remains highly unlikely. So does the prospect of replacing North Carolina with another team on the schedule.
NC State and West Virginia officials will try to reschedule the game. If they cannot, NC State will look for a replacement game to fill out the home schedule.
Wake Forest also moved its Thursday night game against Boston College up to 5:30 p.m. because of the impending hurricane.
