(WTXL) — Here in the Big Bend, Florida State University fans are keeping a close eye on Dorian.

Many of you have reached out to us about what this storm could mean for Florida State's game this weekend in Jacksonville.

At this point, everything is on schedule for Saturday's match-up between Boise State and the Seminoles.

The Jacksonville Sports Council puts on this game and a spokesperson told us Tuesday "they haven't discussed canceling or postponing the game due to Tropical Storm Dorian. Right now, they're planning to proceed as normal."

We're told there will be a meeting Wednesday to discuss storm plans in more detail. If the track changes, the sports council says there is a plan in place.

We reached out to Florida State too, who said, "it's too soon to make any decisions, but when they are made, the safety of the student athletes and the fans will always be the top priority."

But again, for now, kickoff is still scheduled for 7:00 p.m. Saturday.
