Due to inclement weather stemming from Hurricane Harvey in the forecast, more than 50 high schools around Kentucky have elected to move their football games from Friday to Thursday or Saturday. A complete list of affected games can be found at the bottom of this story.

St. Xavier at Bowling Green, one of the state’s marquee matchups this week, was moved from Friday night to Saturday afternoon.

“Moving our game to Thursday was not an option in BG,” Bowling Green Coach Kevin Wallace tweeted. “BG’s Thursday forecast calls for thunderstorms & 3 inches of rain.” (sic)

Scott County’s home game against Highlands — another one of the state’s biggest matchups this weekend — has been moved from Friday to 7:30 p.m. Thursday. It will still be played at Georgetown College’s Toyota Stadium, where the Cardinals play all of their home games.

The annual tilt between Boyle County and Danville, one of the area’s best rivalries, has been moved to 7 p.m. Thursday at Admiral Stadium.

Paul Laurence Dunbar’s home game against Clark County has been moved to 7:30 p.m. Thursday.

Henry Clay’s home game versus Johnson Central has been moved to Thursday at 7:30 p.m.

Lexington Catholic’s home game against Lafayette is still scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Friday.

“We have home soccer games on Thursday, so we are going to roll on as of now for Friday night,” LexCath Coach Mark Perry wrote in a text message to the Herald-Leader.

Bryan Station plans to still host Belfry at 7:30 p.m. Friday. Moving the game would have complicated schedules for the boys’ and girls’ soccer teams. The Station girls host Harrison County on Thursday night while the boys host Pleasure Ridge Park on Saturday afternoon.

Tates Creek Coach Antoine Sims confirmed that the Commodores will still play 7:30 p.m. Friday at Harlan County.

Lexington Christian is playing at Vincennes Lincoln (Ind.) on Friday. Eagles Coach Ethan Atchley said Vincennes had not reached out to him about any changes to the game.

Paris Coach Brian Washington said his team will still play Pineville at 7:30 p.m. Friday, but the game will be played at Bourbon County High School (which has a turf field).

Bourbon County was originally scheduled to play at Madison Southern on Friday. That game is the second game of the Doc Sipple Bowl, which has been moved to Saturday. The first game of the double-header, Madison Central-Southwestern, will kick off at 5:30 p.m. Saturday.

Woodford County’s home game against Franklin County has been moved to Thursday. The football game will begin 30 minutes after the Franklin County-Woodford County boys’ soccer game is completed; that game is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Thursday.

Montgomery County will host Harrison County at 6 p.m. Saturday. That game was originally scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Friday at Harrison County.

Owen County’s home game against Newport has been moved from Friday to 7 p.m. Thursday. Owen County’s homecoming activities were scheduled for Friday but will now be held when the Rebels host Fairview on Friday, Sept. 8.

Corbin Coach Justin Haddix said the Redhounds’ home game against Pulaski County is still on for 7:30 p.m. Friday.

Here’s a list of the games that have been moved, curated from the KHSAA and Twitter. It will be updated as needed.
