Iowa, Iowa State Agree to New Football Game Agreement

June 3, 2008

IOWA CITY — Officials from the University of Iowa and Iowa State University jointly announced today a new 10-year agreement that extends the popular series between the two universities’ football teams through the 2017 season.

“This annual event is extremely meaningful to the state, the alumni and fans of both universities, and to our football programs. I’m pleased we were able to secure the near-term future of the series in a way that worked well for both institutions,” said Gary Barta, director of athletics at the University of Iowa.

The agreement calls for five games to be played on each campus, alternating between the UI and ISU, beginning with this year’s game at historic Kinnick Stadium in Iowa City on Sept. 13. All ten games will be played on the second Saturday of September.

The UI Athletics Ticket Office continues to accept orders for season tickets to the seven home games of the 2008 Iowa Hawkeyes from members of the general public, UI faculty and staff, and current UI students in incoming freshmen. For more information or an printable application, click HERE.
