The Big Ten announced two more start times Tuesday for a pair of Iowa football games happening at Kinnick Stadium in September.

The Hawkeyes’ season opener against Tennessee Tech on Sept. 3 will be an 11 a.m. Central kickoff and televised by the Big Ten Network, while the Sept. 17 contest between Iowa and Pittsburgh is also slated to begin at 11 a.m. Central and will air nationally on either ESPN or ESPN2.

With this, the Hawkeyes now have six games with times set in stone. Last week, it was revealed Iowa’s tilt at Iowa State on Sept. 10 would be an 11 a.m. kickoff on FSN. As far as Big Ten play is concerned, the Hawkeyes’ contest with Northwestern is the lone prime time appearance for Iowa in 2011, a 6 p.m. Central kickoff on BTN, while games against Indiana and Nebraska will both start at 11 a.m. Central.

No TV has been set yet for the Iowa/Indiana contest. The regular season finale at Nebraska on Nov. 25 will be aired nationally on ABC.
