With Incarnate Word making the FCS Playoffs, the odds of Iowa State playing them on December 1st went down. Instead of risking the game not being played at all, Jamie Pollard decided to schedule his central Iowa neighbor, the Drake Bulldogs.
Incarnate Word was scheduled as Iowa State’s 12th game in place of the cancelled South Dakota State match. We wish our long-lived rivals the best of luck in the FCS Playoffs.
This will be Iowa State and Drake’s 70th time facing. The Cyclones lead the series 48-17-4, but the Bulldogs had the last laugh in 1985 with 20-17 win.
The game will take place on December 1st at 11 AM.
