There are no more TBA's listed on Northwest Missouri State's 2013 football schedule.
All of the start times have been finalized for next year's 11-game regular season slate which begins Sept. 5 with a 6:30 p.m. opener against Saginaw Valley State (Mich.) at Bearcat Stadium.
The Bearcats have eight different kick-off times in 2013, including five in a row to begin the year. By comparison, Missouri Western has five regular season start times.
Northwest has three games that begin at 1 p.m.—home tilts with Nebraska-Kearney (Sept. 28) and Central Oklahoma (Oct. 12) and a Nov. 9 road encounter with Emporia State.
There are two 2 p.m. games at Northeastern State (Oct. 5) and home versus Missouri Southern on Homecoming (Oct. 26)
Northwest's first three games against Saginaw Valley, Central Missouri (Sept. 14) and Fort Hays State (Sept. 21) are at night, while the remaining eight start between 1 and 3 p.m.
The three night games are the most Northwest has had in any of the last three seasons. Last year, the Bearcats kicked off just once after dark.
The Oct. 19 Fall Classic with Northwest and Pittsburg State at Arrowhead Stadium begins at 3 p.m. That's an hour earlier than last year's scheduled 4 p.m. kickoff.
The game didn't actually get underway until 5 p.m. due to severe weather and was delayed further in the first quarter.
In the home finale Nov. 2, Northwest hosts Washburn at 2:30 p.m. in a game that will be televised on the MIAA Network.
The regular season finale with Missouri Western is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. and could be moved back to 2:30 p.m. if it gets picked up by the MIAA Network.
Northwest went 10-3 last year and lost in the second round of the Division II playoffs to Minnesota St.-Mankato. The Bearcats finished runner-up in the MIAA to Missouri Western.
