A major hurricane named Ike is scheduled to arrive in Austin, Texas around game time saturday. Given the current forecasts that show a storm building to a potential category 4 hurricane heading almost directly toward Austin, the chances of the game being cancelled or rescheduled are very high. If rescheduled there may be a chance of them meeting on September 27 which is a bye week for both teams. This would mean 7 games in a row against some of the toughest teams in the country. Any way you slice it, the coming weeks are going to be more than a challenge for the hogs. There's an outside shot that both schools could agree to cancel this years matchup and schedule easier foes. However, it's not known what other schools would be available.
The official announcement for game plans should come by noon tomorrow. Keep posted.
