The University of Florida’s home football game against Eastern Washington has been moved to Sunday due to Hurricane Ian.

The Gators (2-2) host the Eagles (1-2) at noon.

The University Athletic Association announced the move on Tuesday afternoon as Hurricane Ian shuffles events across the state. The school said that “most game day activities, including tailgating, will remain the same for Sunday with the exception that there will be no road closure of University Avenue, resulting in a modified Gator Walk.”

The game will still be available digitally on ESPN+/SEC Network+ and carried on the Gators Radio Network.
