April 18, 2014

Stony Brook, N.Y. - In an effort to provide fans with an exciting start to the Labor Day weekend, Stony Brook and Bryant have agreed to move the 2014 season opener to Thursday, August 28.

The game, which originally was scheduled for Saturday, August 30, will be the first Thursday game in the history of the program. The game time will be announced at a later date.

"I'm looking forward to playing on Thursday night," Stony Brook head coach Chuck Priore said. "A number of schools have started their seasons on a Thursday night. This gives our team an opportunity to play in front of our passionate student body and fans the opportunity to get an exciting head start to the holiday weekend."

Stony Brook topped Bryant, 21-13, last season before a sell-out homecoming crowd of 11,244, the largest crowd in LaValle Stadium history.

The Seawolves, who will wrap up spring practice with their spring game on April 26, will open the season at home against Bryant. The ticket office is accepting season ticket renewals through May 9. Fans have the ability to renew online, in person, by mail or over the phone.
