UH is in discussions for the Warriors to open the 2018 football season in August, most likely on the road.
The Warriors are currently scheduled to open against Navy on Sept. 1 at Aloha Stadium.
But an NCAA rule allows UH to play a game on “week zero” — the Saturday prior to the Thursday preceding Labor Day. This year, Labor Day falls on Sept. 3. That means the Warriors are allowed to move a regular-season game to Saturday, Aug. 25.
If an agreement is reached, it would create a bye week for the Warriors. The Warriors currently are scheduled to play 13 weeks in a row without a break.
Any schedule change would not involve moving the Sept. 15 game against Army at West Point. Several travel packages already have been sold for that game.
A decision is expected within the next month.
