FIU moving home opener from Miami to Birmingham
Florida International University is moving its football game with Alcorn State to Legion Field.
The game was originally scheduled for Saturday in Miami, but the threat of Hurricane Irma has forced them to move the game to Friday night at Legion Field.
Mayor William Bell offered the field, and all fees have been waived.
Birmingham will also host the FIU swim team at the Crossplex or at UAB.
