Can Mediacom customers in central and eastern Iowa watch Iowa vs. Iowa State?
As of now, the answer is no.
Mediacom and TEGNA, owner of ABC affiliates WOI in Des Moines and WQUAD in Moline, Illinois, have been locked in a contract dispute for months, leaving ABC blacked out for Mediacom customers — and it doesn't appear anything will change prior to the 2021 Cy-Hawk game.
“We’re still trying to get a better price for our customers,” Mediacom spokesperson Phyllis Peters told The Register, “but given that it’s been many months and this game is coming up in just (a few) days, that’s not necessarily looking like it’s going to be the option for our customers.”

History of Iowa vs. Iowa State in the Cy-Hawk football game
As of late, it's been all Iowa.
Matt Campbell has toppled the likes of Texas, Oklahoma and Oregon, among others, but a win in the Cy-Hawk series has evaded his team. Iowa has won the past five meetings.
Iowa won the last meeting against Iowa State, 18-17, in one of the most bizarre Cy-Hawk games to date, which featured two weather delays in the first half and a muffed punt to seal the deal in 2019.
Iowa holds a 45-22 series advantage all-time vs. Iowa State.
