Temple game moved to Sept. 5

Beavers will open the 2002 season with two Thursday night football games.

The Oregon State/Temple game was changed from September 7, a Saturday, to September 5, a Thursday, by the Temple athletic department. The athletic department changed the date to avoid conflict with Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year.

The game will be played at Franklin Field, the oldest stadium still in use for college football games, on the campus of the University of Pennsylvania. The contest will begin at 4 PM PDT and will most likely be televised on Fox Sports Northwest.

Other Notes
  • The Eastern Kentucky game on August 29th, also a Thursday, will be televised on Fox Sports Northwest.
