IOWA CITY – The University of Iowa has added a home date with the University of Nevada to complete its 2022 football schedule.

Iowa will host the Wolf Pack on Saturday, Sept. 17, as part of Family Weekend. The Hawkeyes open the season hosting South Dakota State (Sept. 3). Iowa will then host the annual Iowa Corn Cy-Hawk Series contest versus Iowa State on Saturday, Sept. 10.

Iowa opens Big Ten play at Minnesota in the battle for Floyd of Rosedale (Sept. 24), before hosting Michigan in the first conference home game of the season (Oct. 1). Additional league home games are against Northwestern (Homecoming, Oct. 29), Wisconsin (Nov. 19) and Nebraska (Nov. 25). Iowa’s open date falls on Oct. 22.

Additional Big Ten road games include Purdue (Oct. 8), Ohio State (Oct. 15), Rutgers (Nov. 5), and Illinois (Nov. 12).

Nevada’s current head coach is Jay Norvell, a Hawkeye football letterman in 1985. Norvell earned first-team All-Big Ten honors as a defensive back. He was named a co-Most Valuable Player after leading the Big Ten with seven interceptions, helping Iowa share the Big Ten title and earn a spot in the 1986 Rose Bowl Game. Norvell went on to play in the NFL prior to beginning his college coaching career as a Hawkeye graduate assistant.
