In a flurry of moves Tuesday, ESPN and the Sun Belt Conference announced that Troy’s home opener against Texas State has been moved to Saturday, Oct. 10, from its previously scheduled Thursday date, while also announcing kickoff times and TV networks for Troy’s road games at Middle Tennessee and BYU.

The Troy and Texas State matchup was originally slotted for Sun Belt’s traditional Thursday night ESPNU broadcast on Oct. 8. However, the move to Saturday puts the game in position for broadcast on ESPN or ESPN2; a kick time and TV network will be announced closer to gameday.
