The September 10th football game between Iowa State and Iowa will be televised to a portion of the country. ABC has announced it will televise the matchup in Jack Trice Stadium to a regional audience. “Both programs have received national recognition coming off of last year and both teams are going to be near the top of their respective conferences and I think that brings the television audiences along with the success,” says ISU athletic director Bruce Van De Velde. The Cyclones tied for the Big-12 North division crown and beat Miami of Ohio in the Independence Bowl. The Hawkeyes are coming off a Big Ten co-championship and a victory over LSU in the Capitol One Bowl. Van De Velde says kickoff has been set for 2:30 that Saturday afternoon and it will be part of a big day for college football. “If you look at the games that are on before and afterwards, it’s really a national stage,” he says. The Iowa/Iowa State game will follow the Notre Dame/Michigan game. Ohio State will play Texas after the Hawkeyes and Cyclones battle. “The whole day is really going to be a premiere college football line-up and it’s wonderful to see Iowa and Iowa State be a part of that,” Van De Velde says.
