• Northern Iowa and Iowa State have tentatively rescheduled their rained out softball game for Wednesday, April 26 at 4 p.m. in Ames.

The date is tentative because UNI plays Drake April 25 and should that game be postponed, it would take priority as a Missouri Valley Conference matchup and would then be played April 26. If that occurs, the UNI-Iowa State game will be moved to April 27.
