Volcano Could Stall Croke Park Classic

Penn State and UCF are expected to play next Saturday at the Croke Park Classic in Ireland but mother nature may have different plans.

Scientists are claiming the volcano Bárðarbunga located in Iceland could abruptly erupt in the coming days which could affect air travel to Ireland. Although not located where the game is being held if the event occurs, the ash could potentially lead to cancelled flights. According to sbnation.com, a 2010 Iceland volcanic eruption caused 100,000 canceled flights in Europe.

Both officials from Penn State and UCF are closely monitoring the situation. The Knights are scheduled to depart for Ireland next Tuesday.
