After taking on Southern Shreveport for the first time, Iowa Central will host long-time rival Iowa Western on Saturday, April 3.
Three consecutive road games follow as the Tritons head to College of DuPage, play at Ellsworth and are at Iowa Western to conclude April.
Following a bye, Iowa Central returns home on Saturday, May 8 to host Snow with Ellsworth the next week. They conclude the season on Saturday, May 22 at Arkansas Baptist.
The three ICCAC teams will be playing home-and-away games against each other. Teams can begin practice on March 1.
NJCAA officials limited the season to eight games for all programs.
