Mother Nature already has forced Florida State to cancel one game and reschedule its game against Miami to Saturday.

Despite a tropical storm barreling toward Florida again, the Seminoles and Hurricanes will play Saturday as rescheduled. Kickoff is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. ET.

On Wednesday, a Florida State official issued a statement on the potential of having to deal with tropical depression Nate, which is expected to grow into a tropical storm and possibly a hurricane.

"We are monitoring the tropical storm and will continue to do so throughout the week," the official said, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

Miami has not yet released a statement regarding the storm.

Models of the storm's path predict it will take a western shift, which will allow the game to start on time, according to the Tallahassee Democrat.

Hurricane Irma forced the game to be postponed from its original date, Sept. 16.
