One of the big stories of the 49ers' new Levi's Stadium has been the issue of it's natural grass turf. Crews pulled out most of the new turf this week and replaced it, hopefully in time for the Sunday pre-season game with San Diego. But, Thursday they told the Jesuit Marauders that their Aug. 29 season opener in the stadium against perennial power De LaSalle must move elsewhere.
To make things good with the Jesuit folks, the Niners will now allow the Marauders to play one of their traditional Saturday home games there later in the season. Jesuit selected its Oct. 11 game with Elk Grove. However, the contest in Santa Clara will be played on Friday, Oct. 10, part of a four-games-over-two-nights high school football special.
