Iowa State and Iowa’s annual rivalry football matchup isn’t going away — at least not in the next few years. 

Iowa State Athletic Director Jamie Pollard and Iowa Athletic Director Gary Barta announced the Cy-Hawk football game has been extended through 2023. The amendment stretches the contract by two years, from 2021. 

Keeping in order with alternating hosts every year, the Cyclones will travel to Kinnick Stadium in 2022, and in 2023, the Hawkeyes will come to Ames. 

The Cy-Hawk series went through a 43-year hiatus but was renewed in 1977. Iowa has a 42-22 record in the series. The Hawkeyes beat the Cyclones in 2016, 42-3, but Iowa State has a 10-9 advantage in the series since 1998. 

Iowa State will host Iowa in the 2017 Cy-Hawk game, which will take place on Sept. 9.
