While talk about moving Ole Miss’ game against No. 2 Alabama due to the potential threat of Hurricane Delta took place on Wednesday and Thursday morning, the game will stay on Saturday as scheduled.
There is a change to when the game will start, though. On Thursday, the school and the Southeastern Conference announced the game will kickoff at 6:30 p.m. CT. The move is a delay of 90 minutes from its original start time of 5 p.m. CT. The change in time is to allow for a better forecast and improved game conditions.
“This decision was made with the safety and wellbeing of our student-athletes, staff and fans as the priority,” said Keith Carter, Ole Miss vice chancellor for intercollegiate athletics.
