LSU officials have released a statement about the impending arrival of Hurricane Delta ahead of the game against Missouri, which is scheduled for Saturday night in Tiger Stadium.

“We are closely monitoring Hurricane Delta and are in close communication with SEC and University of Missouri Athletics officials on contingency plans should they become necessary,” the LSU statement read. “At this time, it is too early to make a determination on any impact the storm may have on Saturday’s football game against Missouri. The game remains scheduled for 8pm CT on Saturday in Tiger Stadium. We will continue to update our fans throughout the week as more information becomes available.”

LSU is coming off a 41-7 victory over Vanderbilt, while Missouri lost to Tennessee 35-12 on Saturday.

The Weather Channel forecast for Saturday in Baton Rouge is: “Windy at times with periods of rain. High 78F. W winds at 25 to 40 mph, decreasing to 10 to 20 mph. Chance of rain 90%. Rainfall around a quarter of an inch.”
