From the IHSAA and KWQC-TV 6 - The Iowa High School Athletic Association is changing the format for the 2020 football season due to COVID-19. Instead of the typical nine game schedule, a seven-week regular season is planned. Teams will have the option of scheduling five, six, or seven games within those seven weeks. Week 1 and Week 2 will be optional game dates. All teams will qualify for the postseason.
The new format will not penalize teams with a loss or forfeit due to state, county, or local health department determinations. A missed game due to COVID-19 will be considered a “no contest” and will not be made up. Teams may work with the IHSAA and new possible opponents should they have open dates due to scheduled opponents missing games.
