The Iowa football program released a Week 1 hype video narrated by Dolphin on Friday morning, and it will surely get you pumped for Saturday's 11 a.m. affair at Kinnick Stadium in Iowa City.

“In one minute, brothers return to the gridiron. New faces step into their dreams. One minute until a familiar face steps into a new role. And the dean of college football coaches steps into Season 19," Dolphin says.

"… In the Hawkeye State, this is what we live for. This is what we fight for."

Saturday's 11 a.m. contest will air on Big Ten Network.
