FSU reschedules ULM game for Dec. 2

RECOMMENDED READING


Florida State has rescheduled the Louisiana-Monroe game that was called off because of Hurricane Irma.

The Seminoles will host ULM at noon on Dec. 2, FSU announced Tuesday morning.

"I appreciate the efforts of our administration as well as the administration and Coach (Matt) Viator at ULM to get this game rescheduled," FSU coach Jimbo Fisher said in a statement. "It was unfortunate for both teams that we were not able to play this game in September, and both teams deserve the chance to play their 12th game of the season. Any time we have the opportunity to play in Doak Campbell Stadium in front of our fans we are excited. However, this week our complete focus is on Clemson."

The Seminoles were set to host ULM on Sept. 9, but the threat of Irma caused the game to be canceled. FSU also had to move its game against Miami from Sept. 16 to their mutual open date on Oct. 7.

The Dec. 2 game gives FSU another home game (and the revenue that goes with it), and it serves another purpose. It increases the likelihood that FSU will become bowl eligible, extending its bowl to streak to an NCAA-record 36 consecutive seasons.
