Hurricane Isaac has forced LSU football to officially cancel their Wednesday practice as a safety precaution but the Tigers' season opener against North Texas is still expected to be played as scheduled.

According to the story initially reported by ESPN, LSU has altered plans for two other sporting events. Friday's soccer match against Stephen F. Austin was postponed until Tuesday and the volleyball tournament scheduled for Friday and Saturday on campus has been moved to Houston.

Additionally, concerns over Hurricane Isaac have already lead to the postponement of Texas A&M and Lousiana Tech's Thursday night game in Louisana along with South Alabama's home opener against Texas-San Antonio on the same night.

If the LSU game is to eventually be rescheduled, it wouldn't be the first time. Back in 2005, Hurricane Katrina caused the postponement of a game with North Texas in Les Miles first season as the Tigers' head coach.
