IHSAA releases 2020 football schedules

IHSAA releases 2020 football schedules


Iowa high school sports fans looking for something to occupy their bored and idle minds got a gift on Thursday as the IHSAA released the 2020 football schedules. There are a few interesting matchups and non-matchups. 

For the first time since 2011, there will not a be a Battle for Cerro Gordo, as Clear Lake and Mason City will not face off this upcoming season. 

With the move from Class 4A to Class 3A, the Mohawks' schedule looks very different than it did last season. Mason City will again take on Fort Dodge and Marshalltown, but those are the only two holdovers from the Mohawks' 2019 slate of games. 

Over in Clear Lake, the Lions will open up against Aplington-Parkersburg, head coach Jared DeVries' alma mater. 

Out in Britt, the season's most intriguing game will come on Sept. 25, when West Hancock hosts Bishop Garrigan.

Here are the 2020 schedules for a few area squads.
