Boasting an undefeated start to 2021, No. 2 Iowa football heads into a game against Purdue fresh off the heals of one of the biggest regular-season wins in program history.

The Hawkeyes and Boilermakers square off on Saturday at 2:30 p.m. CT. Fans can watch the homecoming game on TV on ABC or stream on Watch ESPN.

Iowa (6-0, 3-0 in the Big Ten) took down No. 4 Penn State 23-20 on Oct. 9 in dramatic fashion. After Iowa kicked an early field goal, Penn State scored 17 straight points. From there, though, it was Iowa — the Hawkeyes outscored the Nittany Lions 13-3 in the second half. Not only did the Hawkeye defense notch four interceptions, it held an opponent to fewer than 25 points for the 28th consecutive game.

Meanwhile, Purdue (3-2, 1-1 in the Big Ten) just concluded its bye week. Before their week off, the Boilermakers lost to Minnesota 20-13 on Oct. 2. In that game, Purdue quarterback Aidan O'Connell threw for a season-high 371 yards and one touchdown in the loss. Receiver David Bell caught six passes for 120 yards, too.
