New Hampshire Football Report

UNH game moved to UAB

Georgia Southern University and the University of New Hampshire have mutually agreed to move their scheduled football game Saturday to Birmingham’s Legion Field due to the threat of Hurricane Irma.

“When looking at the possibilities where we could try and play this football game, UAB and AD Mark Ingram reached out to us and offered us their facilities,” Georgia Southern athletic director Tom Kleinlein said. “After reviewing the updated forecast, we believe the best option for ensuring this game being played is to move to Birmingham. With the potential impact on the region and our campus, it was paramount to make a decision today so that we would not have to pull resources that may be used in an evacuation scenario.

“I want to thank Mark Ingram, the City of Birmingham and everyone involved in making this move possible. We couldn’t have made this possible without the flexibility of the University of New Hampshire and our staff.”

Admission for the game will be free.

More details will be made public as they become available.
