The Kansas City Chiefs released a statement regarding the venue change:

After consulting with the National Football League office and a thorough review of the weather forecast, our grounds crew strongly suggested eliminating any activity on the field prior to the game on Sunday. Due to the potential combination of wet snow conditions followed by below freezing temperatures, it has been recommended that the field remain covered during the forecasted precipitation on Saturday.

"We would like to express our thanks to Mel Tjeerdsma, Loren Ferré and both universities for their understanding and working with us to find a solution to this unpredictable situation," Chiefs President Mark Donovan said.

Saturday's Northwest men's basketball game against Upper Iowa has been moved to a 5 p.m. start time. All basketball games this weekend will be free of charge.
