Clemson is moving up the start of its home game against Georgia Southern this weekend due to Hurricane Florence.

The school announced Wednesday that the game, originally scheduled to be played Saturday at 3:30 EST, will be played at noon with the storm still off the coast in the Atlantic Ocean.

Officials at second-ranked Clemson say they would continue to work with state emergency management officials, the Atlantic Coast Conference and Georgia Southern as the hurricane approaches.

The University of South Carolina announced their game with Marshall scheduled for this Saturday has been cancelled.  USC officials said they would look for an opportunity to play a 12th regular season game at a later date.

Also, Appalachian State's home game against Southern Miss has been canceled. Officials at both schools say they are exploring options on rescheduling the game.

In South Carolina, the times of two FCS games have been changed due to the hurricane.

Furman's home game with Colgate in Greenville has been canceled. Furman athletic director Mike Buddie said the game will not be made up, but his school will seek another opponent for its open date on Oct. 6.

Presbyterian's home game against Stetson scheduled to be played in Clinton will now be played at Stetson in Deland, Florida.
