MIAMI (AP) - Hurricane Georges forced the cancellation of Saturday's college football showdown between Miami and No. 3 UCLA.

Saturday's nationally televised UCLA-Miami game was canceled this afternoon by agreement between the schools. It will not be rescheduled; the only available date would have been after the season. The game was to be shown on CBS.

"While it is extremely disappointing that we will be unable to play this game, the importance of responding to the conditions raised by Hurricane Georges were primary in our decision," Miami athletic director Paul Dee said.

The risk of playing the game, school president Tad Foote said, "would be a mistake."

The latest forecast had Georges slicing through the Florida Keys by early Friday.
