Football season just started but hoops fans and players are soon to hit the court. One Division 3 Cedar Rapids college basketball team is getting national exposure for their school this fall.

It's been announced, and confirmed via Coe Athletics, that the Kohawks will play national powerhouse Creighton, in Omaha on December 20th, 2018. The game will also be nationally televised by Fox Sports 1.  The game at the CHI Center, formerly known as CenturyLink Center in Omaha, will tip off at 7 p.m.

Even more exciting for Coe fans, it's the second Division 1 exhibition they have scheduled to play so far this season, after taking on Drake November 4th.

A new season is ahead and these look to be a couple of challenging games. We wish the team great success with this exciting chance to be seen live by basketball fans around the country.
