Indiana’s game against Florida International, scheduled for this coming Saturday in Bloomington, has been canceled, Indiana announced Monday.
Florida International, located in Miami, was struck over the weekend by Hurricane Irma, the storm that devastated much of Florida. Though the game against the Hoosiers was slated to be played at Indiana, Florida Atlantic concluded it would not be able to make the trip.
“[Hoosiers athletic director Fred] Glass and FIU athletic director Pete Garcia have been in regular communication since Sunday about the situation,” Indiana said in a release, “and with FIU classes being canceled, several FIU players and coaches being from the South Florida area, along with the considerable logistical hurdles to overcome in traveling to Bloomington, the decision to cancel the game was made late on Monday evening.”
Indiana announced that it is working to schedule a home game for Oct. 7, which was supposed to be the team’s bye week.
The Hoosiers are 1-1 this season and are coming off a 34-17 win over Virginia.
