This is from today's Gainesville Sun:
There has been speculation that Saturday’s game could be moved to Knoxville or Atlanta if conditions are less than ideal in Gainesville.
The ultimate decision where the game is played will be made by the SEC because it is a conference game. League officials are in contact with officials from UF and Tennessee.
“Now that the storm has passed through Gainesville, the University of Florida is working with local authorities to assess the effect of the storm on the campus and the Gainesville community, at the same time ensuring the appropriate security and local officials are available to host a game,” SEC commissioner Greg Sankey said in a league news release.
The school did an assessment of all its facilities Monday and determined there were no major damages, including to The Swamp, due to the hurricane.

I'm hearing gas might be in short supply in Gainesville. Not to mention a lot of residual water and possible road closures.

They'll still have the game simply so the media can call it a "healing" process for the community as if a football game would heal any devastation!
