With Hurricane Matthew bearing down on the Atlantic coast, South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley addressed reporters on Thursday morning.
Haley said she continues to be in contact with USC athletics director Ray Tanner about the status of Saturday’s game against Georgia.
“That is a complete school decision, in terms of that,” she said. “That’s not anything that I need to make, but we did talk about was the fact that if they went forward with the game, there would be no state resources that could help them, so the 100-200 troopers that they usually request or need would not be available to them, because we have to make sure they’re on the roads and taking care of the drivers.”
A decision about Saturday’s game between the Gamecocks and Dawgs is expected to be announced on Thursday afternoon.
