Houston, TX-Texas Southern made two changes to its 2013 football schedule. TSU will play Jackson State on the road on Thursday, September 19th at 6:30pm. The game was moved so it can be carried live on ESPNU.
The Tigers also moved the game against Southern University to Friday, November 1st at 8:00pm. There was a possible conflict with Major League Soccer. The Dynamo had that date set as a potential home playoff date.
TSU decided to move the game to Friday to better accommodate the fans.
“It was a better option than moving it to a Thursday night because it gives the fans in Houston an opportunity to finish out their work week and come to the game, and it will eliminate a two-day turn-around off work for fans traveling from Baton Rouge,” said athletics director Dr. Charles McClelland. “Hopefully our decision works best for all parties involved.”
The Tigers have five home games this season which will be played at BBVA Compass Stadium.
