The football matchup between the Kent State Golden Flashes and the University of Buffalo Bulls has officially been cancelled due to the more than 60 inches of snow Buffalo received. The MAC said the game will not be rescheduled.

“Despite the best efforts of all involved, it will not be feasible to play the football game between Kent State and Buffalo on Friday,” said MAC Commissioner Jon Steinbrecher. “The game has been cancelled and will not be rescheduled. The safety of the student-athletes and fans is paramount.  We want to be respectful of the efforts of the emergency service personnel in the Buffalo area who are working to assist those in need.”

Kent State’s final game of the season has been moved to the day after Thanksgiving (Nov 28). The Flashes will hope to end the season on a high-note and beat their rivals as they will take on Akron in a battle for the Wagon Wheel. The game will start at 1 p.m. at Dix Stadium.
