This would be the mostly likely candidate if it weren't for the heavy rain expected from the remnants of Hurricane Harvey.

As a category 4 hurricane, Harvey hit north of Corpus Christi, flattening communities and leaving devastation and destruction in its wake on early Saturday. As a result, a few college football games will be affected by the storm. NFL, NCAA and Major League Baseball teams are all working to reschedule and relocate games this week.

The Houston Texans are now away from home in, of all places, New Orleans. They've been in Frisco, Texas since, where they are practicing.

NOLA.com reports game organizers reached out to several stadiums across the southeast about hosting the game.

AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas appears to be out of the mix.

"It's been offered up, but I frankly don't think that is going to happen", the AD said. "I hope that will be within the next 24 hours". Here's what they've posted from around NRG Stadium specifically. Those include Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Nissan Stadium in Nashville and the Cotton Bowl in Dallas. According to LSU athletic director Joe Alleva, he is "almost certain the game will not be played in Houston".

For the third time in three years, LSU is dealing with a weather situation wreaking havoc on a game it was scheduled to play away from its Baton Rouge campus. Later that season, LSU's game with SC was moved to Baton Rouge after devastating floods hampered Columbia, SC. The Astros are in California for a weekend series, but scheduled to play the Texas Rangers starting Tuesday.

The team announced the decision to move the series was because of the safety of fans and everyone in the area.

Doug Thornton, a New Orleans-based executive with SMG who oversees the Superdome in New Orleans, said that the Superdome is available on Saturday if needed.
