With the impending storm system known as Hurricane Harvey rapidly approaching the Texas coastline, the Sam Houston State football team has decided to take precaution and have postponed their season-opener against Richmond. The upcoming game was scheduled for Sunday night at Bowers Stadium in Huntsville.

In what was to be an ESPNU televised matchup between No. 3 Sam Houston State and No. 7 Richmond, officials from both teams are now discussing a proper time and place for the game to take place.

A statement from Sam Houston Athletics Director Bobby Williams was made available on the school’s website yesterday that served as a notice that the game could very well be postponed claiming, “The safety of both teams, personnel and fans are the utmost importance and we expect to make a decision soon that is in the best interest of all involved.”

Late Friday morning, a statement from Assistant Athletic Director Jason Barfield was released to make it official that the game had in fact decided to be postponed.
