It has already been announced that the Miami Hurricanes and LSU Tigers would be facing off in a 2018 kickoff classic in Arlington, TX. Here’s the first piece announcing that game, if you missed it:

Today, however, a slight change to the schedule was announced: the game has been moved from Saturday, September 1st, 2018 to Sunday, September 2nd, 2018. From the release:

CORAL GABLES, Fla. – The University of Miami's 2018 football opener against LSU at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas will be played on Sunday, Sept. 2, 2018 at 7:30 PM ET, it was announced Tuesday.

Originally scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 1, 2018, the matchup will be broadcast on ABC as part of ESPN's networks five-day college football kickoff weekend showcase. The game will mark the third consecutive year ABC has aired a prime time game on the Sunday of Labor Day weekend.

The 2018 opener for the Hurricanes and Tigers will mark the first regular season meeting between the two schools since 1988 and just the third overall meeting since 1969.

You can read the full release here.

So, if you, like me, are going to Texas for this game, be sure you extend your stay through Labor Day.
