For the first time in school history, the Iowa football team will play two games under the lights in Kinnick Stadium, the Big Ten Network and Big Ten announced Monday.

The Hawkeyes are scheduled to play Pittsburgh on Sept. 19 and Minnesota on Nov. 24 on the network. Kickoff times have yet to be announced.

“We’re excited about the night-game selections. We know our fans enjoy the special electricity that fills Kinnick Stadium when we’re playing under the lights,” Iowa Athletics Director Gary Barta said.

The last time the Hawkeyes played a night game, they lost a 38-14 contest to Penn State on Oct. 20, 2012. Iowa has played 10 night games in Kinnick and owns a 6-4 record.

Iowa is scheduled to begin the 2015 season on Sept. 5 against Illinois State.
