From Duke press release

"With the potential for inclement weather this weekend, Duke Athletics has moved its annual Youth Day presented by McDonald's from this Saturday's Duke-Northwestern football game to September 27th and the Duke-Virginia game.

"The safety of our fans, especially the young people travelling with their church youth groups, is first and foremost on our minds," said Bart Smith, Duke's Director of Promotions. "We hope that Hurricane Hanna will not be a factor for the game on Saturday, but we felt it was better to make the call now. We will shift the program and concert by Christian rock group Caedmon's Call to the Virgnia game."

The concert and kickoff times for September 27 will be announced on Monday, September 15.

Youth Day presented by McDonald's brings church groups from across the state to the annual gathering. Past events have featured such speakers as Pete Maravich, Roger Staubach, Tom Landry, Kyle Rote, Jr., Julius Erving, Bobby Richardson, Mike Krzyzewski and other inspirational guests. The program will take on a different look this year, with the well-known music group Caedmon's Call performing prior to the game."
