NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

Due to the massive flooding in and around the Baton Rouge area, LSU officials have announced that LSU Football Fan Day and Media day have been canceled. Both events were scheduled for Sunday on campus. 

School officials say that the Fan Day event will not be rescheduled. The school is working on a plan to distribute placards containing the football schedule, as well as, posters and complimentary Geaux Clear bags which were going to be handed out at Sunday's event. 

“Safety is our primary concern right now,” LSU Vice-Chancellor and Director of Athletics Joe Alleva said. “Unfortunately, with all of the high water, flooding and continued rain, there is no way that we can put people in harm’s way so we have no choice but to cancel this event.”
