UCLA and Texas A&M have agreed to change the date of the 2017 football game between the schools.

This morning, UCLA announced that the date of the Texas A&M game has been changed. It was previously scheduled for Saturday, September 2nd. The game will now be played on Sunday, September 3rd.

This change will allow the game to be played in primetime on Sunday evening. In other words, that means that the kickoff time for the game will be either 4:30 or 5:00 pm.

No other schedule changes were announced.

UCLA will still play its second home game of the season on Saturday, September 9th against Hawai’i. The change now gives the Bruins a little shorter week to prepare for the Warriors, but that shouldn’t be too worrisome for the Bruins.

Go Bruins!
