A CHANGE IN LOCATION
Thanks to a busy hurricane season that saw Wilma pound Cancun, Mexico, in October, the Caribbean Classic was forced to change locations. Luckily for TCU, North Carolina, Mississippi State, Arizona State, Baylor, California and Marshall, the tournament will still go on as planned in nearby Riviera Maya, which sits about 60 miles south of Cancun and is 10 miles from Playa del Carmen.
