William and Mary's season football opener at N.C. State has been moved to Thursday, Sept. 1.
The kickoff time will be announced later for the contest, which was originally slated for Sept. 3.
This will be William and Mary's first Thursday night game since the 2007 opener against Delaware.
N.C. State will open the season on a weeknight for the first time since 2012 and the third since 2008.
Two other Atlantic Coast Conference teams, Louisville and Wake Forest, will also host Sept. 1 openers.
