SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The 2018 and 2019 football schedules for the Iowa football team have been released, and it appears as though the Hawkeyes are getting some breaks.

Iowa will not play Big Ten goliath Ohio State during the regular season of either of those years, and it skips a matchup against Michigan in 2018. Iowa will play in Ann Arbor on Oct. 5, 2019.

The Hawkeyes will get a crack at new Big Ten members during those years, though, when Maryland comes to Iowa City on Oct. 20, 2018. Rutgers will also take the trip to Kinnick Stadium the following year on Sept. 7.

It also appears as though Iowa has been cemented as Nebraska’s opponent for the annual Heroes game on the Friday after Thanksgiving. It was believed another team would replace Iowa in the Heroes game matchup, played between Iowa and Nebraska on Black Friday since the Huskers joined the conference in 2010. Iowa is 0-2 in those two games, and will travel to Lincoln in the latest installment of the matchup on Nov. 29.
