Alcorn State will play under the Friday Night Lights this season.

Their September matchup at Texas Southern has been moved from a Saturday to a Friday. The Braves and Tigers will now play Friday, September 29th at 8:00pm. It's designated as a non-conference matchup.

An Alcorn spokesman said the reason for the move is a scheduling conflict with Major League Soccer. TSU plays home games at BBVA Compass Stadium, the home of the Houston Dynamo. The Dynamo have a game against Minnesota United on September 30th.

Alcorn State opens the 2017 season Saturday, September 2nd against Miles College.
