    IOWA CITY, Iowa — Start times for two University of Iowa football games have been announced, including the Homecoming contest against Illinois (Oct. 10). The Big Ten Conference announced start times of selected games Thursday, with the majority of the contests serving as Homecoming for the host institution.

    The Hawkeyes’ Homecoming game against Illinois on Oct. 10 at Kinnick Stadium will start at 11 a.m. (CT). The game will be televised on BTN, ABC, or an ESPN network (ESPN, ESPN2, or ESPNU). Iowa holds an all-time Homecoming record of 56-42-5, including a 5-5-2 mark versus Illinois. Iowa defeated Indiana, 45-29, in its 2014 Homecoming game.

    Iowa will be the opponent for the Northwestern Homecoming game on Oct. 17. That contest in Evanston, Illinois, will also have an 11 a.m. (CT) start time and will be televised on BTN, ABC, or an ESPN network.

    Iowa home games versus Pittsburgh (Sept. 19) and Minnesota (Nov. 14) have been designated for prime time coverage on BTN. The kick time for those games is 7 p.m. CT.

    Start times and television information for Iowa’s remaining games have not yet been released. The Big Ten Conference is expected to announce start times for the first three weeks of the season in the near future.

    The Hawkeyes open the season Sept. 5, against Illinois State in Kinnick Stadium. Iowa then travels to Iowa State (Sept. 12), before hosting Pittsburgh (Sept. 19) and North Texas (Sept. 26).
