Iowa will play Colorado State in football for the first time in 2021, the university announced Friday.
That game has been scheduled for Sept. 25, 2021, in Kinnick Stadium and leaves the Hawkeyes with one open date for that season.
The 2021 season is unusual in that Iowa opens play with a Big Ten Conference foe — Indiana at home on Sept. 4. The Hawkeyes also close the year by visiting Wisconsin.
After hosting Indiana, Iowa visits Iowa State for the Cy-Hawk rivalry game and then has a Sept. 18 opponent still to be scheduled before Colorado State comes to Iowa City for the final non-conference game.
The Rams compete in the Mountain West Conference and are currently 6-5 under third-year coach Mike Bobo, a former quarterback and offensive coordinator at Georgia.
Iowa's 2021 schedule:
- Sept. 4: Indiana
- Sept. 11: at Iowa State
- Sept. 18: TBA
- Sept. 25: Colorado State
- Oct. 2: at Northwestern
- Oct. 9: Penn State
- Oct. 23: at Maryland
- Oct. 30: Purdue
- Nov. 6: at Nebraska
- Nov. 13: Minnesota
- Nov. 20: Illinois
- Nov. 27: at Wisconsin
