This season’s Cy-Hawk Classic between Iowa and Iowa State features a pair of Top-10 teams, so you would think there wouldn’t be any need to help fans get hyped up for the game.

But with a rivalry game at stake, the Iowa football team felt it should take every opportunity it could to get the fan base going, releasing a new hype video just prior to kickoff.

The Hawkeyes are off to a hot start, with a 34-6 blasting of then No. 17 Indiana in their season opener last week. The game was looked upon to be a battle of two would-be 2021 B1G powers, but the Hawkeyes defense kept Hoosiers quarterback Michael Penix, Jr. off his game to come away with the dominant victory.

For the Cyclones the opener was a little rocky, winning a nail-biter over Northern Iowa by just six points, 16-10.

The Cy-Hawk will kickoff at 3:30 PM CT in Ames on ABC.
