Report: Florida-Michigan 2017 season opener could be moved
It’s one of the biggest games for the opening weekend of the 2017 season, but the game might be played on a different date.
The 2017 opener for Florida is set for Saturday, Sept. 2 against Michigan. The game will be played in AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, but that could be changing.
According to a report from ESPN‘s Adam Rittenberg, there have been preliminary discussions about moving the game to Sept. 3. Both schools must agree to move the game.
The Dallas Cowboys, who play in AT&T Stadium, would not start their season until Sept. 7 at the earliest. The Notre Dame-Texas game, which was played on the Sunday before Labor Day in 2016, was one of the most-watched games of the season.
As of right now, no game is scheduled for Sept. 3. Georgia Tech and Tennessee play in Atlanta on Sept. 4. Florida and Michigan met in the 2016 Citrus Bowl, and the Wolverines won 41-7.
