The Cal Poly football team will play a Friday night game for the second straight season when it faces Portland State in the Big Sky Conference opener for both teams Sept. 27.

The Mustangs were originally scheduled to visit the Vikings on Saturday, Sept. 28, but the game was rescheduled at the request of the Portland Timbers.

The Major League Soccer team has a home match scheduled for Sunday, Sept. 29 and prefers to have an extra day to convert Jeld-Wen Field from a football venue to a soccer pitch.

Cal Poly defeated Weber State 45-23 on Friday, Oct. 5 in Ogden, Utah. It was the Mustang’s first Friday night contest since 1962.
