It turns out Iowa will have one prime time game in 2013 after all.

The Hawkeyes’ annual showdown with Iowa State on Sept. 14 will be a 5 p.m. Central kickoff and will be televised nationally on the new Fox Sports 1 channel set to launch in August. This announcement came from the Big 12 Conference on Tuesday.

This will mark only the third time an Iowa/Iowa State game has started later than 2:30 p.m. CT, with the most recent occurrence coming back in 2002 when the Cyclones defeated the Hawkeyes 36-31 at Kinnick Stadium.

Iowa now has five kickoffs set for this season, with two more (the first two games against Northern Illinois and Missouri State) still expected to be announced by the Big Ten before the season begins. Other kickoff times already include the Hawkeyes’ homecoming game against Michigan State and road games at Minnesota, Ohio State and Nebraska.
