N.C. State has made the decision not to play its home football game Saturday against West Virginia because of the pending threat of Hurricane Florence.

It is not known if the game will be canceled or rescheduled later this season.

The Wolfpack hosted Notre Dame in 2016 at Carter-Finley Stadium in a game played in a windy rainstorm caused by Hurricane Matthew. More than eight inches of rain fell on the playing field at Carter-Finley Stadium during the game as the Pack won 10-3.

The weather forecasts for Saturday are for more severe conditions should Hurricane Florence maintain its projected course. Hurricane Florence is projected to hit the North Carolina coastline this week as a Category 4 storm.

The game Saturday was to be a matchup featuring two of the nationa€™s best college quarterbacks -- the Packa€™s Ryan Finley and West Virginiaa€™s Will Grier, a Heisman Trophy hopeful.

Before the announcement was made, Wolfpack junior safety Jarius Morehead was asked his reaction if the game were to be canceled or postponed.
