Time change announced for Iowa-Iowa State rivalry game
The battle for the Cy-Hawk Trophy has a new kickoff time.
On Monday, the schools announced that the annual in-state bout between Iowa and Iowa State will be moved to a 4:30 p.m. ET kickoff time (3:30 p.m. CT). The game is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 11 in Ames and will air on ABC.
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, last year’s Cy-Hawk game was not played. This year’s matchup should be incredibly interesting, as both the Hawkeyes and Cyclones are expected to be ranked in the preseason Top 25 when it’s released.
