Hurricane Isaac impacts college football

Hurricane Isaac is taking a toll on the opening week of college football.

 

Two Thursday games-Texas A&M at Louisiana Tech and Texas-San Antonio at South Alabama-have been postponed, and remnants of the storm are expected to impact other games through the weekend.

 

The A&M-Louisiana Tech game has been pushed back to Oct. 13, causing sportsbooks to refund any bets already placed on the game. One BetOnline user reported his bet had been cancelled Tuesday night and credit put back into his account. Bovada also ruled no action and refunded all bets that had already been placed.

 

House rules at the Las Vegas Hotel & SuperBook stipulate a game must be played within eight days of the original scheduled date or bets are cancelled.

 

The UTSA-South Alabama game was pushed back to 2 p.m. ET, Saturday.

 

LSU’s home game against North Texas was still on as of Wednesday, with Isaac expected to have moved out of the area by Saturday night’s kickoff.

 

The storm is expected to travel north through Louisiana and into Arkansas, which could affect the Razorbacks’ opener against Jacksonville State on Saturday.

 

Missouri’s home game against Southeast Louisiana also could be impacted, with forecasts calling for a 70 percent chance of rain. 

 

The storm is expected to take a northeast turn over the weekend and could make its presence felt in Kentucky.
