More information will be released about season tickets and parking in the coming months.
The Carthage game is one of three non-conference contests on the 2020 slate for the Warhawks, who enter the program’s 127th season of competition this fall.
UW-Whitewater is coming off a 13-2 season that included the program’s 37th Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference championship and 10th trip to the Stagg Bowl, the NCAA Division III championship game. The team finished the season as national runner-up.
The Warhawks’ season opener is the first-ever game against the Red Men, who finished with a 4-6 record a season ago, including a 4-5 mark in the grueling College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin (CCIW).
UW-Whitewater hosts its final two non-conference games of the regular season on Sept. 12 against Concordia-Moorhead (Minn.), which is Senior Day at Perkins Stadium, and Sept. 19 against St. Xavier (Ill.) in rematches of contests from last season.
The Cobbers posted a 5-3 mark in the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (MIAC) last season on their way to a 5-5 overall record. The Warhawks traveled to Moorhead on Sept. 14, 2019, emerging with a 20-10 victory.
St. Xavier, a member of the NAIA and Mid-States Football Association, reached the NAIA Championship Series quarterfinals in 2019. UW-Whitewater scored 14 unanswered points on its way to a 28-20 triumph against the Cougars on Sept. 21, 2019, in Chicago.
The Warhawks’ WIAC schedule includes alternating home and away games starting Oct. 3 at UW-Eau Claire. UW-Whitewater welcomes UW-Oshkosh to Perkins Stadium Oct. 10 as part of Family Fest on campus, looking to avenge its only loss of the 2019 regular season.
UW-Whitewater continues the conference slate Oct. 17 at UW-La Crosse and Oct. 24 against UW-River Falls for Homecoming at Perkins Stadium.
The Warhawks play two of their final three games on the road, starting Oct. 31 at UW-Platteville in the annual George Chryst Memorial Bowl. After hosting UW-Stevens Point for Shriners Day and Military Appreciation Day on Nov. 7, UW-W closes the regular season Nov. 14 at UW-Stout.
