The University of Iowa and Iowa State University have extended the contract for the annual Cy-Hawk football game through 2027, the schools announced Thursday.
Xavier Hutchinson’s three-year span as a Cyclone has included starting in the school’s first New Year’s Six Bowl as well as weathering this season’s spate of close losses. ISU matched a program record with nine wins in his first season and is scrambling to secure bowl eligibility in his final go-around.
Iowa State’s offense turned the ball over five times. It struggled against one of the Big 12’s worst defenses — and inept play on that side of the ball once again doomed the Cyclones to a 20-14 loss Saturday against injury-deleted Oklahoma State at T. Boone Pickens Stadium in Stillwater.
