UNI panthers share holiday breakfast

CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -- The University of Northern Iowa Panther football team enjoyed a little bonding Wednesday.   Because of their playoff game Saturday against Maine the players aren't able to go home for thanksgiving.

But Wednesday morning the panthers enjoyed breakfast curtesy of the Cedar Falls Village Inn.  The restaurant provides meals to the players every year they make it to the playoffs.

"When UNI makes the playoff their school shuts down for the week of Thanksgiving," said General Manager Brian Toskey.  "They need some place to go and eat.  We usually set up a menu for them and feed anywhere from 80 to 100."
