Truro Daily News - - SPORTS -

There will be foot­ball in Tampa this week­end, and the Buc­ca­neers will fi­nally get to start a sea­son de­layed by Hur­ri­cane Irma’s wrath.

The Bucs an­nounced that they will be able to host the Chicago Bears on Sun­day at Ray­mond James Sta­dium. Tampa Bayu couldn’t play at Mi­ami as sched­uled in Week 1 be­cause of the storm. Buc­ca­neers CEO Brian Ford says “host­ing the game is im­por­tant to us, as Tampa Bay has been through a lot over the past few days. Also, No. 22 South Florida is re­sum­ing prac­tice Tues­day and will play host to Illi­nois on Fri­day, also at Ray­mond James. USF ath­letic di­rec­tor Mark Har­lan says “we are con­fi­dent that Fri­day’s game can pro­ceed safely as sched­uled with­out im­pact­ing the re­cov­ery ef­forts.” CP/AP
