Utah's football game against Utah State has been moved to a Friday kickoff to accommodate a live broadcast on ESPN2.
Kickoff is set for 6 p.m. on Sept. 7.
The change means Utah's first Saturday game won't be until it hosts BYU on Sept. 15.
The opener on Aug. 30 against Northern Colorado is on a Thursday and the Utes play USC on Thursday, Oct. 4.
Kickoff times have yet to be announced for the other games.
