Georgia Tech is scheduled to face UCF Sept. 16 in Orlando .

FIU game moved to Birmingham

Florida State’s home opener at Doak Campbell Stadium in Tallahassee against Louisiana-Monroe has been canceled. The game, which had been rescheduled from 7:30 p.m. to noon Saturday, will not be made up.

South Florida game off

The South Florida Bulls canceled plans to travel to Connecticut to UConn. The game had been moved up on the schedule to 10:30 a.m., but officials at the Tampa school cited concerns over travel safety as reasons to forgo the game.

Florida cancels North Colorado matchup 

The Florida Gators and Northern Colorado Bears had moved up Saturday’s kickoff time before deciding to cancel the game.

Since the schools do not share a common open date, the game will not be rescheduled
