The Gamecocks are hoping to rebound this weekend against Marshall but state officials would rather them cancel the game to help with Hurricane Florence preparations.
As of right now, local high schools in Columbia are being set up to house and feed lineman and emergency personnel who will be on call to deal with the after effects of Florence. State officials would prefer them be in hotel rooms. That can only happen if the Gamecock game is canceled this weekend.
So far the North Carolina/Central Florida game has been canceled as well as the West Virginia/N.C. State game.
