Another storm could be threatening the Florida State-Miami rivalry.


Tropical Depression 16 is making its way toward the Gulf of Mexico with the potential to become Tropical Storm (or Hurricane) Nate. The storm could hit the Panhandle on Sunday morning.

NHC is forecasting a hurricane to be near Tallahassee on Sunday morning.

Football is obviously not the most important thing here, but FSU is scheduled to host No. 13 Miami at 3:30 p.m. Saturday. This is a rescheduled game - it was initially supposed to be played on Sept. 16 but was moved because of Hurricane Irma.

Both schools say they're monitoring the situation.

"I really don't know anything other than there is something brewing," UM coach Mark Richt said Wednesday during the weekly ACC coaches' teleconference. 

Richt expects to get a briefing about the possible impact later today.
