University of Washington officials have expressed their comfort with the construction progress of Husky Stadium by moving the first fixture forward.

The renovated Husky Stadium was scheduled to be opened on September 7th 2013, when Boise State make the trip to Washington for a non-conference fixture. It was announced on Monday that the fixture has been rearranged for a week earlier to August 31st 2013.

UW athletic director Scott Woodward said: "The diligent work and progress made to date by our development team has instilled great confidence that the Husky Stadium renovation will remain on time and on budget."

During the renovation, the Huskies will play their 2012 home schedule at CenturyLink Field, home to the NFL franchise Seattle Seahawks.
