High school activities directors have been busy responding to Friday’s (7/24) decision by the Iowa High School Athletic Association to change the 2020 football season. Schools will now play seven regular season games, with every school to be involved in the playoffs. Oskaloosa’s new schedule now has the Indians opening August 28 at home against Dike-New Hartford, a team that was not on the Indians’ original schedule. Then on September 4, Ottumwa will come to Statesmen Community Stadium. The Indians will open District play September 11 with a trip to Benton, then a game at Grinnell the following week. On September 25, the Indians will host Cedar Rapids Xavier. Then there’s a trip to Clear Creek-Amana on October 2 and a home game with Newton October 9. The playoffs will begin October 16.
