Being mostly from Miami (not exactly an up-and-at-'em town) many FIU fans harrumphed about the noon start time for the Sept. 15 FIU football game at Central Florida, the Orlando school's home opener.
Smile and sleep in, FIU faithful. Game time has been changed to 4 p.m.
Also, FIU's Sept. 8 home opener against Akron and the Oct. 13 home game against Middle Tennessee State will be 6 p.m. kickoffs.
