The Oregon State has postponed its football game with Nicholls State University.
The game was expected to be played on Saturday, September 1st. However, Nicholls State is having a hard time getting out of Louisiana with Hurricane Issac hitting yesterday, which is now a Tropical Storm.
“It became apparent as the day progressed that the safety of Nicholls State’s team and personnel was a primary concern,” OSU Director of Athletics Bob De Carolis said. “Many of the Colonels’ student-athletes and staff are with family and there is a deepening concern about their safety in returning to campus. We will continue to discuss the possibility of rescheduling the game.”
Both teams will likely play on December 1st, as long as Oregon State does not play in the Pac-12 Championship game and Nicholls State is not in the FCS playoffs. Both teams have a bye week, but are at separate times.
Oregon State has a bye week on September 15th. Nicholls State has their bye game on September 29th.
Oregon State last postponed a college football game nearly 11-years ago due to the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The Beavers were supposed to play Montana on September 15th, 2001, then it was moved to November 17th, 2001.
