South Carolina governor “can’t imagine” UGA, USC game will be played as scheduled due to Hurricane Matthew

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) – With Hurricane Matthew approaching, the South Carolina-Georgia football game is still on for Saturday night even though Gov. Nikki Haley says she “can’t imagine” the game being played as scheduled.

South Carolina administrators said Tuesday they were consulting with the Southeastern Conference, the National Weather Service and local authorities.

Matthew is a category 4 storm with winds up to 145 mph. It is on track to hit South Carolina and potentially disrupt the game at Williams-Brice Stadium.

The storm was about 1,000 miles from Charleston on Tuesday. But forecasters predict the hurricane will move near or along South Carolina’s coast late Friday into early Saturday as a category 2 storm.
