LSU at Florida game postponed as Hurricane Matthew nears


MIAMI (AP) – No. 18 Florida’s home game against LSU has been postponed because of looming Hurricane Matthew, which has already been blamed for more than 100 deaths and is threatening the southeastern U.S. coast.

The Southeastern Conference announced the decision on Thursday. The SEC said efforts would be made to reschedule the game, though the Gators and Tigers do not have a common open date.

Earlier Thursday, U.S. Sen. David Vitter of Louisiana urged Florida Gov. Rick Scott to intervene in hopes that the Florida-LSU game would be either moved or rescheduled.
