Good news is this game is actually on local affiliates. 401 of you have Xfinity and live in PB County. So I may have wasted the $10 I spent on an HDMI to iPhone cord, lol.†

Way to get the win Owls, go get S. Miss!!!
I would not mind a Thursday night duel.
He said no such discussions have taken place and he hopes FAU will be back on the gridiron on Saturday.
That said, Taggart feels sorry for the central Gulf coast for the onslaught of storms they have had to deal with this year.
MY OPINION: There's no way we play in Hattiesburg on Saturday. Absolutely no way.
We will continue to update y'all as information comes in.
As of now, the game is still on to take place in Hattiesburg this Saturday.

We could possibly hear a decision around that same timeline.
Shane Marinelli OC40 saidMizzou is supposed to play LSU Saturday, and they are talking about moving the game to Missouri and it has been reported by Dave Matter of the St.Louis Post Dispatch that a decision is expected tomorrow morning.

Thatís a timeline that makes sense. All of the logistical things, primarily planes and hotels, would likely keep this from lingering into Thursday or beyond.†
My uneducated guess remains we will know the final decision by 6 p.m. †ET Wednesday (C-USA offices are in Texas, so end of business there) at the latest. Good find, Shane.†
