Harvey Impacts LSU/BYU Game in Houston on Saturday: Saturday's college football game between LSU and BYU was going to be played in Houston, but the catastrophic flooding and damage from Hurricane Harvey makes a move likely. It may be played in Baton Rouge or New Orleans. This would be three years in a row that an LSU game was displaced. In 2015, flooding moved a game from the University of South Carolina to Baton Rouge. In 2016, Hurricane Matthew moved another from the University of Florida to Baton Rouge.
