Give college football administrators credit for adjusting on the fly amid the coronavirus crisis.

No. 14 Coastal Carolina was all set to host No. 25 Liberty on Saturday, with ESPN’s "College GameDay" crew coming to Conway, South Carolina, for the first time. But when the Flames had to cancel due to COVID-19 issues, a plan B came together for another worthy top-25 matchup.

No. 8 BYU will be heading to Coastal instead. The schools had been in talks once word came that Liberty might not be able to play. The Cougars had the weekend open and were willing to travel for another high-profile game.

The schedule change was officially announced Thursday morning. The newly created top-15 clash will kick off at 5:30 p.m. ET and be shown on ESPNU.
