KALAMAZOO -- WMU has reached an agreement with the University of Wisconsin to move the 2000 season opener between the two schools to Thursday, Aug. 31. Kickoff will be 7 p.m. CST (8 p.m. EST) at Camp Randall Stadium in Madison, Wis.
Rescheduling the game from its original date (Sept. 2) allows both teams to open preseason camp a few days earlier and allows extra preparation time for the respective Sept. 9 contests (WMU at Iowa, Oregon at Wisconsin).
The Broncos also announced starting times for their five home contests. The complete updated schedule follows.
Aug. 31 at Wisconsin, 8 p.m. Sept 9 at Iowa, time TBA Sept 16 INDIANA STATE CommUniverCity Night, 6 p.m. Sept 23 TOLEDO Southwest Fest, 6 p.m. Sept 30 OHIO Family Fest, 1 p.m. Oct. 7 at Marshall, time TBA Oct. 14 open date Oct. 21 NORTHERN ILLINOIS Homecoming, 1 p.m. Oct. 28 at Kent, time TBA Nov. 4 at Ball State, time TBA Nov. 11 at Central Michigan, time TBA Nov. 18 EASTERN MICHIGAN, 1 p.m. Times listed are Eastern Time.
