It’s been a week since Iowa’s thrilling 37-17 victory over Florida in the 2004 Outback Bowl. Is it too early to take a peek ahead at 2004?

Iowa — and all NCAA Division I-A football teams — will once again play an 11-game regular season. The Hawkeyes will play five games on the road and six games inside historic Kinnick Stadium.

The home schedule opens with non-conference dates against Kent State and Iowa State. It also includes games against four Big Ten Conference teams that advanced to post-season bowl games in 2003: Michigan State, Ohio State, Purdue and Wisconsin.

The away schedule includes a trip to Tempe, AZ, for a date with the Sun Devils of Arizona State followed a week later with a trip to Ann Arbor, MI, and a game with Michigan on the first weekend of Big Ten play. Iowa also travels to Penn State, Illinois and Minnesota.

Four of Iowa’s 2004 opponents finished the 2003 season ranked among the nation’s top 25: Ohio State, Michigan, Minnesota and Purdue.

Iowa’s bye week occurs between its home games against Michigan State and Ohio State.
