CLEAR LAKE — Clear Lake opens up the home portion of their football schedule tonight when they host New Hampton in non-district play. The Lions opened the season with a 34-0 shutout at Forest City, and coach Aaron Stensland says his experienced offensive line, which has all five starters returning from last year, feels they can still improve on their impressive performance.
Stensland says despite a 42-14 loss to Denver last week, the Chickasaws will once again prove to be a tough opponent tonight.
You can hear the Clear Lake-New Hampton game on AM-1490/96.7-FM KRIB and kribam.com as well as watch the game via Lions TV at kribam.com, with the pre-game starting at 6:15 with the kickoff slated for 7 o’clock.
MASON CITY — Mason City heads to Fort Dodge tonight in non-district play. The Riverhawks are 1-0 after beating Marshalltown last week 32-3. Fort Dodge was edged late by Webster City last week and coach Josh Reuter knows the Dodgers will want to bounce back from that tough loss.
Reuter says Fort Dodge will be challenging on the field tonight.

IOWA CITY — On a hot day conditioning will be a factor for the Iowa defense against Utah State. Hawkeye defensive end Joe Evans says the Aggie offense wants to play fast.
Evans says defending a team that wants to snap the ball every 10 seconds poses a challenge.
Kickoff at Kinnick Stadium is scheduled for 11 o’clock with the pre-game at 9 o’clock on AM-1300 KGLO.
AMES — Iowa State defensive end Joey Peterson says the Cyclones hope to learn from the mistakes of last season as they get ready to host Northern Iowa. ISU is coming off a 4-8 season that included a last place finish in the Big 12 race.
Improvement will happen if several young players step up.
The first challenge is an experienced UNI team led by quarterback Theo Day.
Kickoff at Jack Trice Stadium is scheduled for 1 o’clock on Saturday.
