Fans of the Hawkeyes who live outside the state of Iowa and can’t make it to historic Kinnick Stadium can relax. Iowa’s first two home football games — the Throwback Game against Kent State on Sept. 4 and against Iowa State on Sept. 11 — will be broadcast on a pay-per-view basis by ESPN.
ESPN, through its ESPN GamePlan package, will provide live game coverage of the Kent State and Iowa State games. Fans can learn how to access television coverage of those events by clicking HERE.
The 12th ranked Hawkeyes will square off against Arizona State on Sept. 18 in a televised game on ESPN Regional for fans living in Iowa and on Fox Sports Arizona for fans in the greater southwest.
A string of nationally televised games could start when the Hawkeyes meet up with Big Ten Conference rival Michigan for the start of the league season on Sept. 25. Television plans for that game are not yet finalized, but the Big Ten’s television agreements with ABC-TV and ESPN provide plenty of opportunities for the Hawkeyes and their fans.
