I work in Cedar Falls and live near and just learned last week that the first game is this week. Crazy how little they are promoting it
To be fair, there have been plenty of times in the past that I've realized there was a game because of the cones being placed on Hudson Rd. They've never done a good job promoting their games locally.

This just seems to be a bigger opportunity than most years to at least promote the TV side. Surprised that KCRG hasn't done more commercials for it honestly if they're the ones showing it.

I doubt they have any issue filling their limited capacity in the dome.

There were still teams opting out as late as last week. I think everybody was just super nervous that it wasn't actually going to happen.

And can confirm, the limited capacity for the year, right around 3000, is sold out with a pretty significant wait list. UNI's season ticket base is about 6000 and that's before you get to parents and a chunk of corporate donors that don't consistently take tickets.

Yeah, my wife was a UNI athlete in college and she (and her family) are legitimate 100% Panther-first fans. My in-laws have started following ISU some since I'm a big fan, but they absolutely hate Iowa and hate how so many UNI people are Hawkeyes first.

So I definitely plan on watching when it works out.
That's got to be a rarity. Most UNI grads I know sport hok gear and stickers on their cars. You'd never know they went to UNI.

I am looking forward to a little football this time of year and will definitely watch them. I’d like to go to a game or two if I can find tickets.

If you want to watch UNI Football Games this Spring some of them will be broadcast on local television:

"Three of UNI's four home games will be broadcast across the region on the Panther Sports Network while the fourth will be produced by the Valley and broadcast exclusively on the ESPN family of networks.

The season opener scheduled for Friday, Feb. 19 against South Dakota State, March 6's game against Illinois State and the home game against Missouri State on March 20 will all be broadcast on the Panther Sports Network.

Fans throughout Iowa will have several viewing options available to them when games are on the Panther Sports Network. You can find the Panthers on CFU Cable TV Channel 15 in the Cedar Falls; KCWI Ch 23 in the Des Moines Market; KGCW 26 in the Davenport Market; KCRG-TV ABC Channel 9 in the Cedar Rapids' market; and regionally on NBC Sports Chicago and ESPN+/3."

That press release could have been a little more clear. I’m still confused as to when they play and where to watch. Would like to do some scouting for the opener.

Have two in on my wife's side of the family - you would never guess they graduated from UNI. Personalized Iowa plates on vehicles and plenty of Iowa gear. Only time they root for UNI is when they play Iowa State.

I am a UNI alum that only cheers for UNI when they play Iowa....

Not entirely true. But I just don't care that much tbh. Declaring your fan loyalty to schools like UNI or Drake would be like saying your favorite baseball team is the Iowa Cubs.

Reminder Game on Tonight at 7 pm if interested. I know for some with Mediacom the CW might be not available (station pulled) but if you have NBC Sports Chicago it's supposedly suppose to be on their Plus channel (if it isn't blacked out).
