At long last, the 2022 college football season has arrived.

Iowa kicks off the season at Kinnick Stadium with a matchup against South Dakota State. While a season opener against an FCS opponent may look easy on paper, South Dakota State is no pushover.

The Jackrabbits finished the 2021 season with an 11-4 record, losing in last year's FCS semifinals to Montana State. They appeared in the FCS championship game during the delayed 2020 season, which was played in the spring of 2021.

This will be the first meeting between Iowa and South Dakota State. Here's how you can watch the game.
