The upcoming AdvoCare Texas Kickoff game between the BYU Cougars and the LSU Tigers was scheduled to be played this Saturday night at Houston's NRG Stadium, but Hurricane Harvey had other plans.

Now, the teams and fans are in angst as officials scout new venues to host the game set for 8:30 p.m. Saturday.

Potential hosts for the matchup include Dallas' Cotton Bowl Stadium, Orlando's Nissan Stadium, Nashville's Music City Bowl, and the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.

ESPN is the game's organizer and according to the Times-Picayune, ESPN has reached out to several venues about hosting the game as officials are "almost certain" the game cannot take place in Houston.

Today on "Pat & Stu" the guys discussed the logistics of attending the game if it's moved, which it will be.
