Start time for OSU game moved up to noon

STILLWATER — The effects of Hurricane Ike seem to have everyone a little cautious.

With the possibility that the hurricane could push heavy rain into the area by Saturday evening, Oklahoma State has decided to move the kickoff of its game against Missouri State from 6 p.m. to noon at Boone Pickens Stadium.

"There's a chance for significant rain, especially in the evening on Saturday,” OSU athletics director Mike Holder said. "We felt like it was in the best interest of our fans to play earlier in the day. We actually have a chance for fairly decent weather — if there's going to be such a thing on Saturday — by starting at noon.”

The time change didn't alter television coverage plans for Fox College Sports. FCS, a channel only available on certain satellite dish packages in Oklahoma, will still air the game.

"We're sorry to have to change it, and especially sorry to do it within 48 hours of kickoff,” Holder said.

"The noon kickoff gives us the best shot at playing our game in the best weather conditions.”
