Select Football Start Times Announced

IOWA CITY, Iowa — Start times for three University of Iowa 2023 football games were announced on Wednesday by the Big Ten Conference in conjunction with BTN, ESPN, CBS, NBC and FOX television networks.

The Hawkeyes open the season with three straight nonconference games. The Sept. 2 season-opener against Utah State is slated for an 11 a.m. (CT) kickoff on FS1.

The annual Iowa Corn Cy-Hawk Series game at Iowa State begins at 2:30 p.m. on Sept. 9 and will be televised on FOX and Iowa’s nonconference finale against Western Michigan will also have a 2:30 p.m. start time, airing on BTN.

FryFest is also part of opening weekend. Slated for Friday, Sept. 1, FryFest is held at the Iowa River Landing and celebrates everything Hawkeye. The Iowa Letterwinners Club will celebrate the 2023 Hall of Fame class throughout the weekend.

Iowa’s road contest at Penn State (Sept. 23) was previously announced as a primetime 7 p.m. telecast on CBS. That kickoff time has changed to 6:30 p.m.

Iowa’s Homecoming game is Oct. 7, with the Hawkeyes hosting Purdue. The game against the Boilermakers will kick at either 2:30, 3, or 6:30 p.m. with the network broadcast yet to be determined.

The final game of the regular season, Friday, Nov. 24 at Nebraska, will begin at 11 a.m. with CBS carrying the game.
