The 2018 Iowa Football season is right around the corner! The Hawks will take on Northern Illinois on Saturday, September 1st, at Kinnick Stadium. The game will be televised by the Big Ten Network, with a start of 2:30 p.m.

According to local bookie "Jimmy the Shark," Iowa is a 13 point favorite against the Huskies. There is no point total available at this time. The Vegas MONEYLINE has Iowa going off at -531.

If I were to put a small wager on this game, I would take the 13 points. It's the first game of the season, and you don't know what's going to happen. I think Iowa wins the game 28-24. I like the Huskies chances of keeping this contest close until the end.

We love the Hawks here at 94.1 KRNA! This season, we will have weekly reports, interviews, and ticket giveaways. For more information, check out our official 94.1 page at www.krna.com.
