Countdown to kickoff: Day 21

Cyclone Fanatic is counting down the days until Iowa State’s season opener against Northern Iowa by bringing you a stat, former Cyclone moment or any other random tidbits every morning to help countdown the days.

No. 21- Iowa State’s all-time wins against UNI

The first meeting between the Cyclones and the Panthers happened all the way back in 1899. That game resulted in a 0-0 tie. Iowa State didn’t claim its first victory over UNI until 1902, when the Cyclones crushed the Panthers 52-0.

The series would cease to exist for awhile as the two teams stopped playing each other after the 1950 meeting, in which Iowa State won 26-8. The two teams decided to restart the series in 1987.

Iowa State has faced the UNI 29 times, with a record of 21-5-3 against the Panthers.

Iowa State beat UNI 31-7 in last year’s season opener at Jack Trice Stadium  The Panthers beat Iowa State in the 2013 season opener 28-20.

Iowa State will face off against UNI to open the 2016 season on Sept. 3 at 7 p.m. at Jack Trice stadium.
