The Iowa Hawkeyes and the Iowa State Cyclones have extended their football series through the 2021 season, both schools announced this afternoon.
Iowa will host Iowa State at Kinnick Stadium in Iowa City on Sept. 8, 2018 and again on Sept. 12, 2020. The Cyclones will play host to the Hawkeyes at Jack Trice Stadium in Ames on Sept. 14, 2019 and Sept. 11, 2021.
“We are pleased to have the contract extended through the 2021 season,” said Iowa Director of Athletics Gary Barta. “In-state rivalries are an exciting part of college athletics, and you can feel a different energy across the state during the week of the Hawkeye-Cyclone matchup.”
Iowa and Iowa State have met 61 times since 1894. In 1977, they began playing for the Cy-Hawk Trophy. The trophy is currently possessed by Iowa after they beat Iowa State 27-21 earlier this season.
“We are excited to extend our contract with the University of Iowa in football through the 2021 season,” Iowa State Athletics Director Jamie Pollard said. “This game is very important to the residents of this state and I am pleased both institutions are committed to continuing the rivalry. Rivalry games are great for college football.”
