Iowa’s first three home games of 2014 now have official kickoff times set after the Big Ten announced them Wednesday afternoon.

The Hawkeyes’ season-opener on Aug. 30 against Northern Iowa will start at 11 a.m. Central and will be televised on the Big Ten Network. Meanwhile, the following two contests against Ball State on Sept. 6 and Iowa State on Sept. 13 will be 2:30 p.m. Central starts that are nationally televised.┬áIowa’s game against Ball State will air on ESPN2, while the annual Cy-Hawk Trophy battle will be televised on either ABC, ESPN or ESPN2.

With Wednesday’s announcement, Iowa now has six games with times set. Back in May, it was announced the Hawkeyes would have 11 a.m. Central contests against Purdue (Sept. 27), Indiana (Oct. 11) and Maryland (Oct. 18).

No announcement was made Wednesday regarding Iowa’s annual Heroes Game against Nebraska on Nov. 28. The start time for the Black Friday showdown had been announced in May each of the previous three years since Nebraska became a Big Ten member.
