Baltimore, MD (Sports Network) - The 2012 New York Urban League Football Classic, pitting Hampton against Morgan State at Yankee Stadium on Nov. 17 in New York, has been moved to Morgan State's campus due to Hurricane Sandy.
Kickoff at Hughes Stadium will be 1 p.m. ET
"Unfortunately, in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy and the impact it has had on the region, ticket sales, travel, hotel accommodations for fans and teams, and the challenges of recovering from the disaster, the game has been officially canceled by the NYUL," Morgan State athletic director Floyd Kerr said Wednesday.
Hampton and Morgan State are members of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference.
