With Hurricane Wilma expected to arrive with potentially devastating force in Florida this weekend, school and Atlantic Coast Conference officials postponed Saturday's game between Georgia Tech and sixth-ranked Miami.
Georgia Tech will play at Miami on Nov. 19. Miami's scheduled trip to Wake Forest on Nov. 17 -- a Thursday night game -- will now be played on Saturday, Nov. 12. ACC spokesman Brian Morrison said no decision has been made on whether the league will shift another game into that Thursday night slot previously held by Miami and Wake Forest.
No. 20 West Virginia's trip to Tampa to face South Florida also was postponed. The Big East will wait until today to announce when the Mountaineers and Bulls will play.
Meanwhile, the Miami Dolphins were taking a wait-and-see attitude and monitoring the storm's path. The Dolphins are scheduled to host the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday afternoon.
The NHL's Florida Panthers had not made any announcement about Saturday night's game against Ottawa. Team officials said an announcement would be made by noon today.

The Orlando Magic said Saturday's home NBA preseason game against Atlanta is still scheduled.
