BYU game in Houston on Saturday might have to be moved

Just a few days ago, the main importance of Houston to most BYU and LSU football fans was that it would host the anticipated 2017 AdvoCare Texas Kickoff matchup at NRG Stadium between the Cougars and Tigers on September 2. But Tropical Storm Harvey could change that.

One of the critical factors for both NRG Stadium and the Superdome in New Orleans is being able to staff the venue for the game.

The Superdome will be used for a Saints preseason game Thursday.

"He wants fans to know that LSU is not in control of this game", Franques said.

And The Heat Wave Begins!
High temperatures Saturday will be 72 to 77 degrees along the coast of San Diego and in 80s to upper 90s in the Valley areas. Overnight lows probably won't cool too much, staying in the upper 50s to low 60s, according to the weather service.

BYU director of athletics Tom Holmoe tweeted out Sunday afternoon: "Cougar Nation, All parties involved are working on a solution to our scheduled game with LSU this weekend". The Merecedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans and LSU's Tiger Stadium are being looked at as two possible sites.

Officials from both schools will meet with ESPN on Sunday to discuss moving the game out of Houston. In a story from The Baton Rouge Advocate's Ross Dellenger, Superdome officials say that they haven't been contacted yet, but would be willing to take the game if necessary. "ESPN is ultimately going to make the decision". Thornton is said be expecting a decision by Tuesday at the latest.

This is the third straight season LSU has seen a game affected by weather.

Sources tell Eyewitness Sports that the game will not be cancelled; it will be played, but where it will be played is still uncertain.

Sports anchor Fletcher Mackel said Doug Thornton, executive vice president for SMG, said he has offered up to the Superdome as a possible venue for the game if officials decide to relocate because of the conditions.

In 2015, its game against SC was moved from Columbia to Baton Rouge because of flooding.

LSU lost a game past year, because of Hurricane Matthew.
