LAWRENCE, Kan. – In an effort to get ahead of inclement weather scheduled to move through the Lawrence area on Friday evening, KU officials have elected to move up the start time of the Kansas-Omaha exhibition soccer game to 5 p.m. (CT). The match was originally scheduled for 7 p.m. Public gates to Rock Chalk Park will now open at 4 p.m.

The Jayhawks will play their first and only preseason exhibition when they host the Mavericks Friday in Lawrence. KU’s regular-season will officially begin on Aug. 22 when Nebraska comes to Rock Chalk Park. The match against the Cornhuskers is set for 7 p.m.
