The ESPN televised matchup featuring North Carolina Central at South Carolina State on Saturday, Sept. 15 has been postponed due to the weather threat posed by Hurricane Florence and the State of Emergency for the states of North Carolina and South Carolina. The contest has been rescheduled for Saturday, Nov. 24 in Orangeburg, S.C.

The Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference is actively monitoring the weather forecasts in the areas Hurricane Florence may potentially affect.

“In consideration of the impending Hurricane Florence and the health and safety considerations for the student-athletes and the fan bases of both institutions, the contest has been postponed. We will continue to keep the public informed of potential changes to other MEAC football games in Hurricane Florence’s path,” said MEAC Commissioner Dr. Dennis E. Thomas.
