With the spring season postponed due to the COVID-19 outbreak, Loras College football head coach Steve Helminiak and the Duhawks are now gearing up for the upcoming season and have officially released the 2020 football schedule.
"2020 is bringing about many new challenges that we are learning to navigate and while the season is still a long ways away, it cannot come soon enough. Our non-conference opponents in 2020 will certainly provide big challenges of their own. We are happy to continue playing UW-Eau Claire from the always competitive WIAC, as we have re-upped for another home and home. Adding St. Norbert as our other non-con is really exciting – A Catholic Liberal Arts college with a mission that is very similar to ours. They’ve had good success and we are looking forward to the tough test. Both UWEC and St. Norbert should prepare us the ARC grind." - Steve Helminiak
The Duhawks open the schedule at home against non-conference opponent St. Norbert College on Sept. 5 before traveling to the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire the following week. Loras starts American Rivers Conference (A-R-C) play on Sept. 19, traveling to Indianola, Iowa to face Simpson College before the first home conference game on Sept. 26 against Wartburg College.
The Homecoming game is set for Oct. 10 against the Central College Dutch and the 13th-annual Key City Clash against crosstown rival, the University of Dubuque, will be played in the Rock Bowl on Oct. 31. The Duhawks close out the season on the road at Buena Vista University on Nov. 7 and will honor its senior class in the final home game against Nebraska Wesleyan University on Nov. 14.
"As always in the ARC, we need to be prepared each and every week as I anticipate the league to be as competitive as ever. As we continue to improve, the expectations among our players and coaches have risen." - Steve Helminiak
