Northern Iowa adds Wisconsin to 2012 schedule

Cedar Falls, IA (Sports Network) - Northern Iowa football will visit the University of Wisconsin on Sept. 1, 2012, as it takes on the Badgers at Camp Randall Stadium.

Already scheduled to play at Iowa on Sept. 15, 2012 will mark the first time since 2001 that Northern Iowa will play a pair of FBS teams in the same season. The Panthers split the games against FBS schools in 2001, losing to Iowa State, 45-0, and upsetting Ball State, 42-39.

"The 2012 schedule creates an opportunity for our team and fans to experience two of the greatest gameday atmospheres in college football," UNI head coach Mark Farley said. "While it is a challenge, it is also an opportunity."

Northern Iowa, which is ranked seventh in the The Sports Network/Fathead.com FCS Preseason Top 25, will open the 2011 season against Iowa State on Sept. 3, the third time in the last four years the Panthers have opened with a FBS opponent.
