BYU AdvoCare Texas Kickoff Likely To Be Moved From Houston

BYU AdvoCare Texas Kickoff Likely To Be Moved From Houston

Officials from both schools will meet with ESPN on Sunday to discuss moving the game away from Houston's NRG Stadium. Alleva said he hopes a decision will be made on Tuesday. The Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans reached out to NRG Stadium, the original venue planned for the college kick-off, to let them know that the Dome is available for their use on Saturday should they choose.

As Louisiana's self-styled "Cajun Navy" mobilized with volunteers and headed to aid in relief efforts for flood-ravaged Houston with anything that would float, it was looking less and less likely that LSU's football team will be following to play in the bayou city this Saturday.

Another question yet to be determined is where the Advocare Texas Kickoff game between LSU and BYU will be held. BYU does not allow its athletic teams to play on Sundays, per university policy in accordance with the Church of Latter Day Saints.

Sunday night, LSU said it was "almost certain" the game won't be played at the location.

"It's been offered up, but I frankly don't think that is going to happen", the AD said. Here's what they've posted from around NRG Stadium specifically. "We just need some prior notice.by the end of Tuesday would be fine", he said.

Officials with the Mercedes-Benz Superdome are offering to host the LSU Tigers and the BYU Cougars next weekend if NRG Stadium in Houston decides it can not host the two teams because of the severe weather conditions due to Tropical Storm Harvey. LSU did not learn until Wednesday before the game that it would host the Gamecocks rather than travel to Columbia. S.C.

The storm caused massive destruction to the surrounding area, making the game unplayable at its originally scheduled venue.
