UConn football's matchup against the University of South Florida on Saturday has been cancelled due to Hurricane Irma, the two schools announced.
"I know both our team and USF were excited about a chance to play this weekend," UConn head coach Randy Edsall said. "We certainly are disappointed, but clearly understand that this is something totally out of everyone's control. I hope that Coach Strong, his team and the entire community impacted by this storm remain safe and know that we are thinking about them as they deal with this."
The game was scheduled to take place at Rentschler Field in Connecticut. The University of South Florida System shut down its campuses from Thursday until at least the end of the weekend.
UConn defeated Holy Cross in their season opener, 27-20. They will return to action on Sept. 16 when they face Virginia.
