Hurricane Issac pulls the plug on Oregon St. home opener.

Hurricane Issac left the college football schedule in a bit of a mess along the Gulf Coast of Louisiana, postponing Texas A&M trip to Louisiana Tech. But Issac also is reeking some havoc in Corvallis, Oregon, of all places. Oregon State's season opener on Saturday was scheduled against Nicholls State, an FCS school located in Thibodaux, La. The storm put the kibosh on the Colonels' trip out west.

"It's extremely unfortunate that we will not be able to make this trip," Nicholls State athletic director Rob Bernardi said in a statement. "With the lingering effects of Hurricane Isaac, we do not want to put any of our student-athletes or staff in danger, so at this point, we feel like it is best to focus on the safety of everyone, and we'll look into rescheduling the game at a later time."

Oregon St. and Nicholls St. are looking at the chances of rescheduling the game, if possible.
