Baylor Moves Football Game to Friday Due to Weather Implications
Sept. 11, 2008

WACO, Texas -- Baylor has moved its football game against Washington State up to Friday, Sept. 12, and will kickoff at 7:30 p.m. CDT in order to avoid complications caused by the approach of Hurricane Ike to the Texas Coast this weekend.

The game, originally scheduled to be played Saturday at 11:30 a.m. and to be televised nationally on FSN, posed potential travel problems to fans, to the Washington State travel party as well as to FSN's crew, the large majority of whom are from the Greater Houston area.

Details on possible television or video webcast of the game are being explored and will be announced as soon as possible. All updates will be posted immediately to

Another Baylor athletic home event altered due to the weather is Sunday's soccer match vs. Arizona State. The match has been moved back to 5 p.m. at Betty Lou Mays Field.

Baylor's campus is currently scheduled to remain open and operational through Friday.
