The LSU Tigers can’t catch a break when it comes to the weather.

Two years ago, a game against South Carolina had to be moved from Columbia to Baton Rouge due to flooding and last year, a hurricane forced the temporary postponement of a game against Florida.

Now, thanks to Hurricane Harvey in Houston, next Saturday’s game AdvoCare Texas Kickoff game against LSU could also be moved.

According to a report by SBNation, LSU and BYU are in talks with ESPN to move the game to a different location so it can still be played on Saturday:

“Officials from both schools will meet with ESPN on Sunday to discuss moving the game away from Houston’s NRG Stadium,” the report reads. “Two potential relocation sites are LSU’s Tiger Stadium or New Orleans’ Mercedes-Benz Superdome. A source told SB Nation both schools are committed to playing the game Saturday in a different city.”

BYU doesn’t allow its sports teams to compete on Sundays, due to a Church of Latter Day Saints policy, so getting the game in on Saturday, regardless of location, is important for the Cougars.

A decision has not been made as of yet, but if the storm continues to pound the Houston area, it’s safe to expect the game to be moved soon.
