The Indiana State Sycamores have released their 2020 football schedule, which includes five home contests.

Indiana State opens the 2020 season with back-to-back non-conference games on the road, beginning at the Eastern Illinois Panthers on Sept. 5. ISU then travels to take on the Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders on Sept. 12.

The Sycamores open up the home portion of their 2020 schedule on Sept. 19 at Memorial Stadium in Terre Haute, Ind., against the Lindenwood Lions. The Lions compete in the Great Lakes Valley Conference (GLVC) in Division II.

With non-conference action completed, Indiana State opens Missouri Valley Football Conference (MVFC) play the following week on Sept. 26 on the road against the South Dakota State Jackrabbits.
