FSU-Boise State opener moved from Jacksonville to Tallahassee

With Hurricane Dorian headed in the direction of Florida, the FSU-Boise State 2019 season opener has been moved. Instead of playing at a “neutral” site field in Jacksonville, the game will take place in Tallahassee — at Doak Campbell Stadium. Kickoff time for the game has been moved up, too. Initially, kick was set for 7 p.m.; however, Florida State and Boise will start things a 12 p.m. The hurricane projects to hit Florida sometime this weekend.

Curt Weiler of the Tallahassee Democrat was the first to report the news.

David Coburn, Florida State’s Director of Athletics had this to say in a press release:

After consulting with emergency responders, law enforcement and hurricane preparedness teams at the state and local level, moving the game is the best option given the information we have at this time. We regret having to move the venue in particular because of the tremendous work that the City of Jacksonville has invested in this event. They have been great partners, and we are disappointed that the game had to be moved. Our fans were very much looking forward to the experience.

All tickets purchased for the game in Jacksonville will be refunded, too, according to Lenny Curry, the city’s mayor.
