GREENSBORO – The North Carolina A&T at Bethune-Cookman football game, originally scheduled for Thursday, October 13, has been rescheduled for 1 p.m., Saturday, October 15 at Municipal Stadium in Daytona Beach, Fla.

The game has been moved because of the damages sustained to Daytona Beach, Fla., after the affect Hurricane Matthew had this past weekend. The game will air live on ESPN3 before being aired on a tape-delayed basis on ESPNU at 10:30 p.m.

N.C. A&T comes into the game 4-1 overall and 2-0 in the MEAC. The Wildcats, who had their Oct. 10 game against S.C. State postponed due to inclement weather, are 0-4 overall and 0-2 in the conference. Saturday will be the 38th meeting between the two teams.

“Unfortunately, Bethune-Cookman was significantly affected by Hurricane Matthew. At this point, it would be better for Bethune-Cookman to host the game on Saturday,” said MEAC Commissioner Dr. Dennis E. Thomas. “Public safety is our top concern and given the information we currently have regarding the recovery process; it was in the best interest of everyone to push back the contest.”
