ATLANTA – Memphis has cancelled its Sept. 30 game at Georgia State as part of a schedule reshuffling orchestrated by the American Athletic Conference involving seven of its teams.

 

Despite the existing contract between Memphis and Georgia State, the AAC rescheduled the Memphis-UCF game for Sept. 30 after their Sept. 9 contest was postponed by Hurricane Irma.

 

Per the contract, Georgia State will receive $1.1 million in cancellation fees and expenses.

 

Georgia State Director of Athletics Charlie Cobb said he is exploring all options for a replacement game this season.

 

“We are disappointed for our fans and our football program with the cancellation of this game, but it is beyond our control,” Cobb said. “All we can do is search for a suitable replacement, preferably a home FBS game this season.”
