The Latest on games impacted by Hurricane Florence. (all times local):

10:15 a.m.

The kickoff for Middle Tennessee's game at No. 3 Georgia on Saturday has been moved to noon because of concerns about the impact of Hurricane Florence.

The game had been scheduled for a 7:15 p.m. kickoff.

Georgia announced the decision to move the kickoff time after "extensive evaluation involving the uncertainty of weather conditions on the East Coast, and consideration of all constituencies involved including fans, support staff, and law enforcement."

There is no rain in the forecast for Saturday. Athens, in northeast Georgia, could be affected by outer bands of the storm on Sunday.

The game will be televised on ESPN News, instead of ESPN2.

Presbyterian has cancelled its football game with Stetson on Saturday because of the approach of Hurricane Florence.

The FCS school was to play at home in Clinton, South Carolina. Presbyterian then shifted the game to the opponents' home field in Florida. But Presbyterian athletic director Danny Sterling says it became clear travelling out of state was not safe for the team or fans.

Florence has altered the schedules of many programs the last two days, cancelling games involving No. 13 Virginia Tech, North Carolina State, North Carolina and South Carolina.
