"ISU and Northern will play in the 2019 season opener. It has not been decided if that game will take place on a Thursday or Saturday, according to Lyons."

Why would we schedule this game on a Thursday evening/night?

I guess because that's one of our football nights. It'll probably get moved to a Tuesday or Wednesday night.

RE: Illinois State @ NIU Football
I'm sick of playing in state FCS teams. I want a home opener vs Illinois or Northwestern.

It may be an opener, but it won't be at home.

If it's labor day weekend it may make more sense to do it on Thursday.

And yeah, a home game vs NW or Illinois isn't happening

Didn't some here say we would have had much better attendance for BC (I recall over 20 K) if it was on Saturday during the Labor day weekend? I would be surprised if we had better attendance on a Thursday night versus Saturday afternoon with an in-state opponent (FCS or not). Maybe I am wrong, but it is pretty consistent here (and I agree) that Saturday games draw better than weeknights.
