The football game between Fresno State and Colorado in Boulder, Colo., was postponed on Friday because of flooding that's devastating the state.
The teams were scheduled to play Saturday at Folsom Field. No makeup date has been announced.
"Even though the weather is improving, Boulder is still designated as a national emergency site," Chancellor Philip DiStefano said in a statement. "Our community is hurting. ... This is not an appropriate time for us to hold a game that would put pressure on the community, both in terms of security/emergency personnel, but also in diverting attention from people in need."
The area has been hit hard by torrential showers, leading to flooding in northern Colorado, especially mountain communities around Boulder. The university has canceled classes through at least Friday.
Colorado coach Mike MacIntyre said the team has moved several players into hotels after they had to leave their homes because of flooding.
"There are a lot issues out there that are a lot bigger than football," MacIntyre said. "This is the appropriate decision and we are all 100 percent in agreement.
"They will be ready to play whenever we get back on that field again. I promise you, we'll be ready to go."
Athletic director Rick George said in a conference call Friday that he will begin discussing the options of rescheduling the game with Fresno State in the next few days. The contest could be made up at the end of the season or possibly even cancelled altogether if no dates work out.
