UNI Football looking for an opponent to fill out schedule

CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -

The impact of West Virginia joining the Big 12 is having a residual effect on the UNI football program.

The Panthers are scrambling to find an opponent for a game on September 8th....

The Panthers were  originally scheduled to host Savannah State at the UNI-Dome on September 8th. But now Savannah State is going to receive 475-thousand dollars to play Florida State on that date-- replacing West Virginia as the Seminoles opponent. UNI Athletic Director Troy Dannen says this puts the Panthers in a serious dilemma, because finding another FCS opponent to fill that date will be highly improbable.
