KALAMAZOO--Kalamazoo College will play its five home football games this season across the street at Western Michigan University's 30,000-seat Waldo Stadium, while the college's athletic fields undergo a $16 million upgrade.

WMU will also share its indoor and outdoor football practice facilities with the neighboring liberal arts college. Bronco coach Bill Cubit said he was glad they could accommodate the college's team and help make a difficult year a little easier.

"It's just a great opportunity to play all of our home games there," said Steve Wideen, Kalamazoo College's director of sports information. "It keeps us from having to play at different sites throughout the city. And having that consistency I'm sure will be very important to our football team."

Kalamazoo Colleges' Sept. 17 home opener against Rose-Hulman will start at 7 p.m., because WMU has a home game starting at noon that day versus archrival Central Michigan. The Hornet's final home game, versus Alma, will move to Friday, Oct. 28, at 7 p.m. The following day, the Broncos play their final home game, versus Ball State, beginning at 2 p.m.
