Acorn-FIU game to change venues

Alcorn State will play Florida International on Saturday, but it won’t be in Miami, Fla., the school announced on its athletics Twitter page Monday evening.

It is a strong possibility that Hurricane Irma, a category 5 storm, could impact South Florida later this week and into the weekend.

ASU tweeted that both are “working on finalizing a neutral site this weekend.”
