The Iowa Hawkeyes play the Iowa State Cyclones on Saturday, September 9th at 2:30 p.m. CT, and if you’re wondering how you can watch the action live, you’ve come to the right place.
Each team comes into this matchup sitting at 1-0 with a similar story. Both teams won their games and neither was necessarily in doubt, but as is often the case for football in Iowa, there were some areas on both offenses that didn’t get the job done quite well enough.
The Hawkeyes had the game in hand against Utah State and put the trust in the hands of their defense in a game that lulled some to sleep with a slow, churn-it-out victory. Iowa State let Northern Iowa outgain them and relied on their defense forcing a couple of turnovers to set them up in position to score and hold on.
Here is a look at the TV info, how to stream, the broadcast teams, a quick glance at the injury report, some key players to watch, and a few tidbits on the Cy-Hawk series.
