UC Davis announced yesterday that the football season-opener against Azusa Pacific will be played on Aug. 30, instead of the initially scheduled date of Sept. 1.
The contest will mark the first time in school history that the Aggies have hosted a Thursday game.
The 2012 season will be UC Davis’ inaugural season as a member of the Big Sky Conference, with the slate of games including eight league match-ups.
The Aggies will host five games in the upcoming season, including homecoming Oct. 6 against Montana State and the Causeway Classic Nov. 17.
UC Davis will announce the times for its home contests later this year.
