WEST LONG BRANCH, N.J.- The Central Connecticut-Monmouth football game scheduled for Saturday, November 3 in West Long Branch, NJ, has been cancelled due to the effects of Hurricane Sandy.  School officials are discussing the possibility of a make-up date, but neither team has an open date until the end of the regular season.

Officials from both schools explored the possibility of moving the game to the CCSU campus, but the safety of the Monmouth student-athletes was the major concern.  

"We sent all of our student-athletes home before the storm to make sure they were safe," said Vice President and Director of Athletics Dr. Marilyn McNeil.  "At this point we are concerned with trying to get them back to campus in a safe and timely manner." 

"In addition, there is nowhere for them to stay on or off-campus if they were to return.  We explored every option but ultimately the decision was based on student-athlete safety, and there are too many unknowns at the current time to move forward with playing the game at CCSU."

Both teams are scheduled to play at home the following week on November 10.
