Important Conference Tilt on the Slate for Central Football Today at Wartburg

At 5-1 in the Iowa Conference, the Central College football team is still in contention for the wide-open league race, but they’ll need to win at Wartburg College today to keep those hopes intact.

The Dutch have enjoyed a rich rivalry in recent years with the Knights, with Wartburg winning six of the teams’ last ten meetings; making today’s contest not only important in the conference standings, but for bragging rights as well.

Wartburg was the preseason favorite to win the league crown, and is 3-2 in conference play and coming off of a bye week. The Knights’ losses were to Coe and Simpson on late-game comebacks, but Wartburg defeated the same Dubuque team that handed Central a very lopsided loss earlier in the season.

Coverage of the game will be broadcast live on 92.1 fm KRLS and streamed at kniakrls.com [1] with the “Voice of the Dutch,” Trevor Castle, providing the play-by-play.

The broadcast from Walston-Hoover Stadium in Waverly begins at 12:45 this afternoon, with kickoff between Central and Wartburg at 1:00 p.m.
