IOWA CITY, Iowa — Start times for five University of Iowa 2022 home football games were announced Thursday by the Big Ten Conference in conjunction with BTN, ESPN, ABC, and FOX television networks.

The Hawkeyes open the season with three straight nonconference home games, each featuring a different start time. The season-opener Sept. 3 against South Dakota State is slated for an 11 a.m. CT kickoff on FS1.

The annual Iowa Corn Cy-Hawk Series game against Iowa State will follow on Sept. 10, with a 3 p.m. CT start time on BTN. Iowa’s final nonconference contest is an evening contest against Nevada, with that game starting at 6:30 p.m. CT, also on BTN.

FryFest is also part of opening weekend. Slated for Friday, Sept. 2, FryFest is held at the Iowa River Landing and celebrates everything Hawkeye. The Iowa Letterwinners Club will celebrate the 2022 Hall of Fame class throughout the weekend.
