New Orleans offered as possible site for LSU-BYU game expected to move from ...

The south Texas town took the brunt of Hurricane Harvey's wrath, damaging residential, business and marina areas.

The Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans has been offered to NRG Stadium officials as a possible contingency site for the Advocare Texas Kickoff game between No.

NRG Stadium suffered no structural damage by the storm, Thornton said, but it was placed on lock down as the streets and highways around it in Houston were flooded along with all other major roads.

It is a neutral site game put together by ESPN and Lone Star Sports & Entertainment of Houston, which operates the Advocare Texas Kickoff.

The Saints had to move all of their home games from the Superdome in New Orleans to Baton Rouge and San Antonio, in 2005 as the dome's roof was ripped off by Katrina winds, and the Sugar Bowl that year was played to Atlanta.
