Football schedule changes, updates announced

March 23, 2000

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.
