Alamodome (San Antonio): The Alamodome is now scheduled to play host to Houston vs. UTSA, but reports on Sunday said this game is in flux.

AT&T Stadium (Dallas): Jerry's World already features No. 17 Florida taking on No. 11 MI. LSU athletic director Joe Alleva has announced that the Tigers' season opener this Saturday against BYU will "almost certainly" be relocated.

Alleva said Tiger Stadium has been offered up, but said he "doesn't think that is going to happen".

In a statement released last Saturday, LSU officials stated that the game now "remains as scheduled" but that they are monitoring the situation. "But if they called Wednesday at noon (I'm) sure could find way".

This will be the third consecutive season LSU will have had to relocate a game due to weather conditions.

Andrew Lopez of Nola.com reports ESPN reached out to the Cotton Bowl Stadium in Dallas about hosting.

China: India is Pulling Troops from the Disputed Doklam Border Region
India and China regularly have small skirmishes, though there has not been a bullet fired between the two countries in decades. The Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, however, vowed to continue to patrol the disputed area, according to Chinese media.

These two teams were suppoed to play their first game of the season at NRG Stadium, the home of the Texans.

Jacksonville's EverBank Field is also reportedly in the mix.

These are the most likely candidates to host BYU vs. LSU, all things considered.

According to The Advocate, there are several options for alternative sites to host the game, including the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.

Hurricane Harvey is a Category 4 hurricane with winds over 130 miles per hour and record-breaking rainfall.

WDSU sports anchor Fletcher Mackel said Superdome officials in New Orleans are in communication with the SMG management team at NRG Stadium as heavy rains from Harvey bear down on the Houston metro.
