Family Day had Hancock Stadium at standing room only and the tailgates all full. Governor Rauner was on hand as well as comedian Bill Engvall. Both teams came into the square off with records of 2 wins and a loss. The Redbirds loss was to Iowa. The Redbirds switched up quarterbacks most of the game with Jake Kolbe getting the first snap and Tre Roberson coming in and out. Jay Blunk, a graduate of ISU and a member of the Chicago Blackhawks stopped by with a big shiny cup often referred to as a Stanley Cup which brought a round of applause from the fans. Redbirds took the game to go to a record of 3-1 and 1-0 in the Missouri Valley Football Conference.
