FORT WAYNE, Ind, (21 Alive) - Saint Francis will open its 17th football season Thursday night at D'Arcy Stadium against Missouri Baptist.

It will be the first time that the Cougars will play on a day other than a Saturday.

There is a method to their madness, as USF is hoping to get more students to attend the game.
