The expectations are very high for the Northern Iowa panther football team this fall.

The Panthers are given a good chance to dethrone five-time defending national champion North Dakota State in the Missouri Valley Football Conference....but first UNI must deal with a very difficult schedule.

The Panthers held their annual media day at the UNI-Dome...

UNI has eight starters returning on offense including dual threat quarterback Aaron Bailey and tailback Tyvis Smith.

UNI will have more of a reloading job to do on defense with just four starters returning...But the Panthers have an All-American candidate in defensive end Karter Schult.

Coach Mark Farley says the greatest challenge that the program is facing this season is getting a young team ready to face a difficult schedule.
