Iowa opens the 2017 season on Saturday, Sept. 2 at home vs. Wyoming, while Iowa State opens on the same day at home vs. Northern Iowa.
This does not surprise me nor bother me, they’re rivals plus Iowa St counts as a P5 team which makes it great for Iowa to keep scheduling a mediocre OOC now having to play in a 9 game conference. They have got it made, as long as they can survive The BIG schedule.
It is bad for Iowa fans who want to see good games. Iowa only plays iowa state outside of the big ten.
I like that we have a bit of a rivalry with iowa state but we need tougher games outside of the big 10
Well…you had NDSU last season and that didn’t go so good. Maybe Iowa doesn’t need tougher opponents outside of the Big Ten..
