Stephen F. Austin/Kentucky Wesleyan game cancelled

Nacogdoches, TX (Sports Network) - Saturday's football game between Stephen F. Austin and Kentucky Wesleyan has been cancelled due to the expected effects of Hurricane Ike on the Gulf Coast region this weekend.

"The safety of our student-athletes and those on the opposing teams is always a primary concern," SFA athletics director Robert Hill said Thursday. "When you also consider that power outages and our potential responsibilities as a shelter site would put added strain on our event management staff, canceling these events is simply the most prudent thing to do."

The game has yet to be re-scheduled.
