2022 Cy-Hawk football game: Everything you need to know

What channel is the game on? How much are tickets? And what are the betting odds? Local 5 has answers for this year's Cy-Hawk game.

IOWA CITY, Iowa — 2022 marks the 69th Iowa vs. Iowa State football matchup, better known as the Cy-Hawk Game.

The Hawkeyes lead the all-time series 46-22.

Iowa State's offense looked sharp to open their season with Hunter Dekkers at the helm, breezing past Southeast Missouri 42-10.

"I really thought he handled the flow of the game really well," head coach Matt Campbell said after the game. "I thought in terms of the operation of the offense, handling of the football, obviously his distribution and accuracy, I thought he was really good."

Iowa's defense stepped up big in Week 1, forcing two South Dakota State safeties and slipping away with a 7-3 win.

"I thought he was doing a good job out there, but we just didn't support him enough," head coach Kirk Ferentz said of quarterback Spencer Petras' struggles. "We weren't clean enough."

What will the weather in Iowa City be like? 

How the weather plays out for Saturday's Cy-Hawk game in Iowa City is completely dependent on a strong cold front pushing across the state throughout the day. 

Temperatures should reach the upper 70s to low 80s on game day before the front arrives, but a quick cool-down is expected once the cold front passes Iowa City. Wet weather is also in the forecast for Saturday, with the timing of the rain also dependent on the cold front's speed. 

At this point, showers are favored for the second half of the game, while the first half has a better chance of staying dry. Either way, the risk for lightning seems low so no significant impacts on gameplay are expected at this time. 

Cyclone and Hawkeye fans should plan to pack a poncho for tailgating and their seats at Kinnick Stadium on Saturday.
