The ACC didn’t take the SEC’s approach when it came to preparing for Hurricane Matthew. That’s made for an interestingly sloppy game for Notre Dame and N.C. State.
Conditions aren’t exactly favorable for football in Raleigh, N.C. right now, but the show is going on. Notre Dame and N.C. State are playing in a driving rainstorm as hurricane barrels along the southeastern coast.
A few SEC games — LSU vs. Florida and Georgia vs. South Carolina — were postponed or rescheduled in preparation for the storm, but the ACC chose to play Saturday’s game in Raleigh.
Here are some of the results of and reaction to the playing conditions:
