Hawkeyes Add Syracuse for '06-07 Football Slate

Syracuse University has been added to the University of Iowa football schedule for 2006 and 2007. The announcement came today from Iowa Athletic Director Bob Bowlsby.

The Hawkeyes will travel to Syracuse, NY on September 9th , 2006 and the Orangemen will visit Kinnick Stadium September 8th, 2007. Syracuse is a member of the Big East Conference.

The two schools have met twice before in football with both winning on their home field. Syracuse beat Iowa 10-7 in 1975 while the Hawkeyes won 41-3 in Iowa City the following year. The 2006 game will be Iowa's first visit to the Carrier Dome.

"We feel good about adding Syracuse to our future football schedules," said Bowlsby. "They've got an excellent football tradition. We expect both games to be excellent for the fans of both schools."
