The Barnstormers alerted the media to a historic announcement they were preparing to make on Monday.

They promised to “lay it all on the line,” and they did.

The Barnstormers and the Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival have teamed up to create the Iowa Bacon Bowl.

There's a bacon flavored trophy, a bacon tailgate, and players from the winning team each receive five pounds of Iowa bacon.

The game will be played on July 20 against the Utah Blaze. The tailgate kicks off at 3 p.m. and the game begins at 7 p.m. Only a limited number of ticket packages will be available starting at noon on Thursday, June 6.
