Washington Football Schedule: Boise State 2013 Game Rescheduled

The Washington Huskies have moved their home-opener for the new Husky Stadium up a week from September 7th to August 31st. The Huskies feel like their stadium renovation is on schedule and will be ready in plenty of time for the beginning of next season and don't want to delay their game an extra week.

Washington is spending their 2012 regular season playing their football games at the Seahawks football stadium at CenturyLink field while their stadium is rebuilt and modernized for the 21st century. The Huskies project appears to be moving in the right direction, at least according to these early indicators. Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times has more.

Washington and Boise State announced Monday the teams will play Aug. 31, 2013, the first game at Husky Stadium after its current $250 million renovation. The game had been slated for Sept. 7. The schools said the new date was deemed "more advantageous" for each school. Boise State has already scheduled another game for Sept. 7, at home against Tennessee-Martin.

Washington will again draw another tough home opponent with the arrival of Boise State. Washington has already played opponents like BYU, LSU, Oklahoma and Nebraska at home the past several seasons, and they've lost all those contests. The Huskies will really hope they can change that formula when the Broncos come on over to town.
