Another LSU football game is being disrupted by dangerous weather. Harvey's flooding rains have thrown into question the Fighting Tiger's season opener against BYU, scheduled for this Saturday in Houston's NRG Stadium. 

"At this moment, I guess any speculation could be thrown out there," said voice of the LSU Tigers Chris Blair. Blair says both schools intend to play this game. but the situation in Houston is clearly more important than a football game. 

LSU director of athletics Joe Alleva seems certain the location will have to change. Both Tiger Stadium and the Superdome have been floated as alternate sites.

"LSU and their administration is certainly a part of this conversation but there are many that are involved," said Blair. "It's quite a feat, logistically."

Blair said the game's sponsors, the two universities, and ESPN will have to come to an agreement: "There's a lot of moving parts here."

Nashville and Orlando are also in the discussions as possible locations for the game between LSU and BYU.
