Panther football to host Lehigh in first round playoff

Posted:

CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -- The UNI football team will open the FCS playoffs at home as they host Lehigh (9-2) in first round action.

The Panthers' loss at Western Illinois on Saturday likely cost the team a first round bye, but it wasn't enough to cost them the home field.  The winner of the first round game will travel to 3rd seeded Delaware the following week.

This is the first ever meeting between UNI (7-4) and Lehigh.  Kickoff is set for 12 p.m. on Saturday.
