The Navy-East Carolina contest scheduled for this Thursday night will be rescheduled to November 19, due to extensive flooding and damage from Hurricane Matthew in eastern North Carolina. Bleacher Report’s Barrett Sallee reported the news:

East Carolina has encouraged students not to report back to campus after evacuation, as conditions in Greenville are still quite hazardous.
? Students: do NOT return to Greenville! It may be sunny now, but flooding from the Tar River will be EXTREMELY dangerous beginning today. ?

The new date will replace a scheduled bye for both schools.
