Iowa football is finally back! It’s game day in Iowa City as your Iowa Hawkeyes are set to open the 2022 season inside historic Kinnick Stadium against 3rd ranked (FCS) South Dakota State. The Jackrabbits come into today’s contest with their eyes set on an FCS national championship and preseason expectations would indicate that’s a very real possibility.
The Jackrabbits boast six preseason FCS All-Americans and are led by a quarterback who won Missouri Valley Offensive Player of the Year in his true freshman season back in the spring of 2021. The last time he was under center for the Jacks, he had led them to the national championship game but tore his ACL as SDSU came up short.
Now Mark Gronowski and the Jackrabbits look to win their third straight game against an FBS opponent as they come to Iowa City to take on the Hawkeyes. As we count down to kickoff inside Kinnick Stadium, here are all the details needed to watch, listen and follow along as the Hawkeyes and Jackrabbits square off.
