S.C. State football moves Bethune-Cookman game to Nov. 26

ORANGEBURG, South Carolina -- After four weeks where they couldn’t catch a break or catch their breath, the South Carolina State football team will now have a second consecutive Saturday without a game.

The S.C. State home football game with Bethune-Cookman, originally scheduled for this Saturday at Oliver C. Dawson Stadium, has been rescheduled for Saturday, Nov. 26.

Officials from both schools and the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference made the decision based on the threat of Hurricane Matthew, which is projected to impact South Carolina with heavy winds and rain this weekend.

The Bulldogs (1-3 record) are coming off their bye week and haven’t played a game since taking a 48-14 win in their MEAC opener in Tallahassee, Fla. against Florida A&M on Sept. 24. That win came after three straight weeks of road losses against FBS opponents Central Florida, Louisiana Tech and Clemson.
