Here we ago again, could it be, another LSU game impacted by weather. The Tigers are scheduled to play BYU next Saturday at NRG Stadium in Houston. But Hurricane Harvey might have other ideas. The National Hurricane Center says it’s possible Harvey can dump 40 inches of rain in Texas. LSU says they are monitoring the situation and the game is still on for now.

LSU lost a game last year, because of Hurricane Matthew. The Tigers were scheduled to play Florida that weekend, but the game was moved to a later in the year and the Tigers were forced to drop a non-conference game so they could play Florida.

In 2015, LSU’s season opener in McNeese State ended in the first quarter after a lengthy lighting delay.

BYU will play its opener tomorrow afternoon. The Cougars are able to play 13 games this year, because visit Hawaii later in the year, so BYU kicks-off against Portland State tomorrow afternoon at 2 PM.
