AZUSA, Calif. -- The Great Northwest Athletic Conference has shuffled the early-season 2013 conference schedule, pushing Azusa Pacific’s home opener against Humboldt State back one week to Sept. 21 while the Cougars will instead visit Dixie State in its 2013 GNAC opener.
The change was made in order to accommodate Humboldt State’s Sept. 14 non-conference meeting with Portland State. Azusa Pacific opens the season with a non-conference visit to Grand Valley State before opening conference play on the road, and the Cougars return home to face Humboldt State and Central Washington on consecutive Saturdays (Sept. 21 & Sept. 28).
The schedule change makes 2013 just the second season in the past 20 years that Azusa Pacific’s first football home game takes place Sept. 21 or later in the calendar year.
