    Noles Working To Drop Maine For Hurricanes On Labor Day

    According to Maine's Bangor Daily News newspaper, FSU is working to be released from a matchup with the Noles and the University of Maine scheduled for September 5. Instead, if the plans are finalized,the Noles would be playing Miami in a nationally televised (ESPN) Labor Day (Sept. 7) night contest against the University of Miami.

    “It was ultimately being driven by the ACC’s need to have Florida State in a different game on a given weekend,” UMaine athletic director Blake James said Monday of the pending switch.

    “I don’t believe we’ll be playing Florida State [in 2009],” said James, who pointed out UMaine will still receive the $450,000 it had previously been guaranteed for the game.
