MSU-Iowa game on Sept. 30 flexed to prime-time NBC broadcast

Michigan State’s road trip to Iowa in a couple of weeks grew a little bit harder on Monday.

Game times and broadcasting information for Week 5 action were released on Monday, and the Spartans’ road matchup against the Hawkeyes was moved to prime time. Kickoff for the Big Ten clash is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. ET on Sept. 30, and will be televised nationally on NBC.

The Michigan State-Iowa game had originally been penciled in as a 3:30 p.m. ET kickoff and available only via streaming on Peacock. However, something must have changed for TV executives to push it into the prime-time slot.

Iowa is generally tough to beat at home, and it’ll only be tougher now for the Spartans in a nighttime environment.
