The starting times for Iowa football’s season-opening rematch against Northern Illinois and second game against Missouri State have been set, according to a release from the Athletics Department.

The Northern Illinois game on Aug. 31 will have a 2:30 p.m. kickoff, and the game against Missouri State on Sept. 7 has been scheduled for 11 a.m. Both will be televised nationally on the Big Ten Network.

The season-opening game against the Huskies will be a rematch of the Black and Gold’s first-week opponent last season, when the Hawkeyes beat Northern Illinois in an 18-17 thriller in Soldier Field. Iowa’s matchup against Missouri State will be Iowa’s first.

Iowa’s attempt to keep Floyd of Rosedale in Iowa City will kickoff at 2:30 p.m. Sept. 28 in Minneapolis.

The home matchup against Michigan State will begin at 11 a.m. Oct. 5. The Hawkeyes’ trip to Columbus, Ohio, to face Urban Meyer’s Buckeyes will commence at 2:30 p.m. Oct. 19, and the season finale at Nebraska on Black Friday (Nov. 29) will begin at 11 a.m. on ABC.
