Iowa State Works To Finalize The Football Schedule

Iowa State is working to finalize its football schedule.

ISU Athletic Director Jamie Pollard expects the Cyclones season to begin September 12th. The Big 12 has adopted a nine game league schedule plus one non-conference game. Iowa State added Ball State to the schedule on September 12th a week ago, but Pollard says they may need to wait to see what other leagues do before finalizing a schedule.

He expects league play to begin on September 26th.

Iowa State and UNLV have mutually agreed to delay their football game scheduled for Sept. 19, 2020 to Sept. 14, 2030 as a result of scheduling modifications by the Big 12 and Mountain West related to COVID-19.

The Cyclones will continue to play at UNLV’s Allegiant Stadium, also home of the NFL’s Las Vegas Raiders, on Sept. 18, 2021 as initially contracted.

Iowa State last played in Las Vegas in 2008.

The schools have met five times previously on the gridiron and the Cyclones hold a 4-1 advantage.

Iowa State will announced future edits to its 2020 schedule as it is finalized.
