When is the Iowa State-UNI football game? How to watch, stream and listen to ISU vs. Northern Iowa

At long last, Iowa State's highly anticipated football season has arrived.

The Cyclones enter 2021 ranked No. 8 in the country following a 9-3 campaign in 2020, which ended in the program's biggest bowl game victory ever — a 34-17 victory over Oregon in the Fiesta Bowl

With almost all of last year's roster returning, 2021 could finally be the year Iowa State breaks through for a Big 12 championship.

But before coach Matt Campbell's team can conquer the Big 12, it will have to navigate three non-conference games. The first game on the schedule is against in-state foe Northern Iowa, which Iowa State last faced in 2019. The Cyclones narrowly survived a triple-overtime battle before finishing the season 7-6.

Here's how you can watch Iowa State's season opener against Northern Iowa.
