Don’t miss an afternoon of fun and football at the third annual Lincoln Bowl, slated for 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 6 at the Knosher Bowl. There will be inflatables and face painting for the kids and Lincoln souvenir fans to keep the crowd cool while the Prairie Fire take the field for their season-opener against the Eureka Red Devils for bragging rights and the Lincoln Trophy.
Knox and Eureka first met on the gridiron in 1893. The Prairie Fire hold the upper-hand in the all-time series against the Red Devils with a 16-7-1 edge. The Lincoln Bowl recognizes the two colleges’ historic ties to President Abraham Lincoln, who spoke at both schools in the 1850s.
Come one, come all! This game will be played before students arrive on campus for the new academic year; let’s fill the stands so our athletes have a rousing crowd to cheer them on!
Go Prairie Fire!
