COUNCIL BLUFFS, IOWA
The 2019 gauntlet has gotten even tougher for Iowa Western football. The Reivers finalized a contract earlier this week, adding perennial junior college power Snow College to the upcoming season's schedule.
Iowa Western Head Coach Scott Strohmeier said, "We are excited to be able to bring an extremely good football team in Snow college to our already competitive 2019 schedule. We want to give our student-athletes the best competition possible year in and year out."
Snow and Iowa Western have met on two previous occasions, both occurring in post-season bowl match-ups. The Badgers took the 2010 Top of the Mountains Bowl, 48-36, while the Reivers returned the favor inside the UNI-Dome last December when Iowa Western kicked a late field goal in a 19-17 victory at the Graphic Edge Bowl.
The addition of Snow means the Reivers will face off against six Top 25 teams from the final NJCAA poll of the 2018 campaign, four in Council Bluffs at Lewis Central's Titan Stadium.
The 2019 season kicks off on August 22nd at Titan Stadium versus Coffeyville, the second straight season the Reivers will begin the year on a weekday.
