Cy-Hawk Football Rivalry Extended Through 2017

The Football series was renewed in 1977, after being off the schedule, since 1934. Iowa hosted the 1977 game and beat the intrastate rival, 12-10, at sold out historic Kinnick Stadium.

Games will continue to be alternated between ISU's Jack Trice Stadium and Iowa's Kinnick Stadium.
This year's game is scheduled for Saturday, September 14th at Kinnick Stadium, in Iowa City, Iowa. Kickoff Time has yet to be announced.

It's interesting to note that for the next 5 years, the guest will continue to receive 20% of the gate. ISU benefits more from the arrangement, since ISU's Jack Trice is less than 80% the capacity of Iowa's Kinnick. ISU will continue to benefit from the next 3 trips to Kinnick, including this season, with the 20% split.
