Hawkeye football is officially back!

NCAA Football: Illinois at Iowa
It’s game day with our most hated rivals!
Jeffrey Becker-USA TODAY Sports

It’s week eight around college football but it’s finally week one in the Big Ten. After weeks and months of anticipation, game day is finally here.

It wouldn’t be 2020 without some wild news and we certainly got that heading into Iowa’s matchup with Purdue. The Boilermakers’ will be without head coach Jeff Brohm today after he tested positive for COVID-19 earlier this week. Purdue will also be without multiple other staff members but we’re yet to get the details on who, specifically. On the field, Purdue is without star receiver Rondale Moore and Brohm indicated earlier in the week there could be 5-6 players out in total.

For the Hawkeyes, we already know middle linebacker Jack Campbell is a no go today. There have been rumblings that multiple other linebackers may also be out. We won’t know for sure until the players take the field for warmups.

As we start our first countdown to kickoff, here’s everything you need to know about today’s matchup.
