Iowa State Cyclones release 2020 football schedule

ISU will start Big 12 play on the road Sept. 26 against TCU.

The Iowa State Cyclones football team will be gearing up to play, as the Big 12 Conference will continue their fall football schedule as planned.

Nine conference games will be played, plus one non-conference game on either Sept. 12 or Sept. 19 as part of the Big 12's "9+1" scheduling model.

Iowa State announced Wednesday that Louisiana will be their non-conference opponent, with a Sept. 12 matchup at Jack Trice Stadium set.

"Our student-athletes want to compete, and it is the Board’s collective opinion that sports can be conducted safely and in concert with the best interests of their well-being," Big 12 Conference Commissioner Bob Bowlsby said in a statement. "We remain vigilant in monitoring the trends and effects of COVID 19 as we learn more about the virus.  If at any point our scientists and doctors conclude that our institutions cannot provide a safe and appropriate environment for our participants, we will change course.” 

Here is a look at Iowa State's 2020 football schedule:

  • Sept. 12: vs. Lousiana
  • Sept. 26: at TCU
  • Oct. 3: vs. Oklahoma
  • Oct. 10: vs. Texas Tech
