AMES — Iowa will take on Iowa State in Week 2 of the 2021 college football season in a highly anticipated, top-10 matchup.

ESPN College GameDay hosted its pregame show in Ames this morning, as the No. 10 Hawkeyes are on the road to oppose the No. 9 Cyclones at Jack Trice Stadium. Both the Hawkeyes and the Cyclones are 1-0 on the season. Iowa State defeated the University of Northern Iowa, 16-10, in Ames Sept. 4, while the Hawkeyes beat then-No. 17 Indiana 34-6, at Kinnick Stadium.

The annual Cy-Hawk trophy has resided in Iowa City following the past five meetings.

Pregame warmups — Hawkeye junior center Tyler Linderbaum has no visible wrap on his injured knee after he went down with a brief injury last week against Indiana. Linderbaum reentered the game last week after his injury, and told reporters Tuesday he will not have any issues come the Iowa State matchup.

Cyclone starting wide receiver Charlie Kolar, who sat out Iowa State’s season-opener last week with an ankle injury, came out for warmups without an ankle brace. Iowa State head coach Matt Campbell said this week that the 2020 second-team All-American would be available for today’s game. Kolar led the Cyclones with 591 receiving yards last season.

Iowa is starting with the same offensive line combination from the Hawkeyes’ season-opener. From left to right: Mason Richman, Cody Ince, Linderbaum, Justin Britt, Nick DeJong.
