2020 Iowa Hawkeyes football schedule released

Iowa will host Maryland to begin their season Sept. 5 at Kinnick Stadium.

Hawkeye football fans: the wait is almost over.

With no Cy-Hawk Game this year and only conference opponents lined up, the Big Ten announced each team's 10-game regular season schedule Wednesday morning.

The Hawkeyes will begin the season Sept. 5 with a home matchup against Maryland.

The Big Ten Football Championship Game will be played Dec. 5 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Ind.

“As a program, we have been looking forward to this day since the decision to play a conference-only schedule was announced," head coach Kirk Ferentz said in a statement. “Knowing when our games are scheduled will allow us to prepare for what is ahead on the field and support our players’ academic schedules off the field."
