Game Day: Television, Radio and More

Oct. 29, 2010

IOWA CITY, Iowa — Will it be tricks or treats for the Iowa Hawkeyes on Blackout Saturday at Kinnick? The answer to that question begins at 2:30 p.m. Iowa time when the UI squares off against Michigan State in a game that will have significant say in the 2010 Big Ten Conference championship race.

The Spartans enter the nationally televised contest as the Big Ten’s last unbeaten team. With just one loss, Iowa is knotted in a second place tie with a handful of league peers including Ohio State – a team the Hawkeyes will entertain in Kinnick on Nov. 20.

“It’s going to be a great challenge for our team and it goes without saying that we’re thrilled to be back in Kinnick,” Kirk Ferentz said of Iowa’s date with the Big Ten’s highest ranked team.

Ferentz expects another knock-down, drag out affair with the Spartans, a common result when these two teams meet as evidenced by Iowa’s victory last year. That game was as physical as it gets and was decided on the final play.

Saturday’s contest will be the 42nd game in the series, a series Iowa leads by a 21-18-2 count thanks to victories in three of the last four games. Iowa also holds an 12-8-1 margin in games played in Kinnick.
