University of Northern Iowa Director of Athletics Troy Dannen and Eastern Washington University Director of Athletics Bill Chaves have agreed on a two-year home-and-home football series between UNI and EWU for the 2015 and 2016 seasons.
The first meeting will occur Sept. 12, 2015, in the UNI-Dome in Cedar Falls. The second matchup will be Sept. 17, 2016, at Roos Field in Cheney, Wash.

UNI and Eastern Washington have met on five previous occasions with the Panthers winning all five matchups. Three of those contests occurred in the FCS playoffs (1985, 1992, 2005).
