AMES, Iowa – The annual Iowa Corn Cy-Hawk Series football game between Iowa State and Iowa has been extended two years.

Iowa State Athletics Director Jamie Pollard and Iowa Athletics Director Gary Barta announced today that a contract extension was signed to continue the series through 2025.

The two-year extension begins in 2024. Two years were added on to the existing contract in 2017 to keep the series intact until 2023.

Iowa State will travel to Kinnick Stadium in 2024 and will play host to the in-state rivalry in MidAmerican Energy Field at Jack Trice Stadium in 2025.

The series resumed annually in 1977 after a 43-year hiatus.

Iowa State will play host to Iowa on Sept. 14 this season.
