CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) — Clemson is moving forward with plans to host its scheduled football game this weekend while Hurricane Florence wreaks havoc on the Carolinas’ coastline with officials bracing for historic flooding and record-setting rainfall that has forced people to evacuate their homes to escape the wrath of the storm. School officials reiterated their plans Friday morning, saying the kickoff against Georgia Southern remains set for noon Saturday. The game is expected to draw about 80,000 fans into the area.

CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) — For Toledo, having a chance to play host to No. 21 Miami represents one of the biggest opportunities in its football program’s history. The Rockets (1-0) entertain the Hurricanes (1-1) on Saturday. The teams met last year and Miami needed to rally in the second half before pulling out a 52-30 win.

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) — Undefeated Syracuse hosts Florida State in the Atlantic Coast Conference opener for the Orange. The Seminoles have defeated Syracuse 10 straight times but have sputtered in splitting their first two games of the season.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh and Georgia Tech will try to put difficult nonconference losses behind them when they meet at Heinz Field in the ACC opener for both schools. Pitt stumbled in the second half of a loss to rival Penn State last week while the Yellow Jackets let a 10-point fourth quarter lead get away in a loss at South Florida. The Yellow Jackets have a 3-2 lead in their series with the Panthers since Pitt joined the ACC in 2013.

UNDATED (AP) — Louisville football coach Bobby Petrino is five years removed from his previous stop at Western Kentucky. He has fond memories of his 2013 season coaching the Hilltoppers. Several Cardinal assistants followed him from Bowling Green, Kentucky for his second coaching stint at Louisville.

Right now, WKU is just the next opponent on Louisville’s schedule.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Virginia is going on the road for its home football game against Ohio. The teams will meet at Vanderbilt Stadium on Saturday after the game was moved because of the threat of Hurricane Florence. The Cavaliers are coming off a 20-16 loss at Indiana. Ohio gave up 645 yards but rallied to beat Howard 38-32 in its opener.

WACO, Texas (AP) — Duke has had to make a lot of adjustments while getting ready to play at Baylor on Saturday.
