Gophers Pregame Show on FOX 9: Minnesota hosts rival Iowa

Watch the Gophers Pregame Show on FOX 9 and streaming live in the player above from 9-10 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 22. 

The University of Minnesota football team closes out its home regular season schedule on Saturday, hosting rival Iowa at 3 p.m. at Huntington Bank Stadium for a game you can watch on FOX 9.

Before kickoff, watch the FOX 9 Gophers Pregame Show with Pierre Noujaim, Ron Johnson and Justin Gaard.

The Gopher Pregame Show will air Saturday at 9 a.m., ahead of the Minnesota-Iowa game, which you can watch on FOX 9 at 3 p.m.

The Gophers are on a three-game win streak, and looking to snap a seven-game losing skid to the Hawkeyes in the annual battle for Floyd of Rosedale. The rivalry game is the one thorn in PJ Fleck’s side, he’s 0-5 against Kirk Ferentz and Iowa. The Gophers also haven’t beaten Iowa since 2014.

Minnesota is still in contention in the Big Ten West, needing to win its final two games, and have Illinois and Purdue lose one of its last two games to head to Indianapolis. Illinois faces Michigan Saturday, and Purdue faces Northwestern.

The Hawkeyes come to Minneapolis after a 24-10 win over Wisconsin last week, where they managed just 146 total yards but got a defensive touchdown, blocked a punt and had a long punt return that set up touchdown drives. The Hawkeyes’ defense has 12 interceptions and six fumble recoveries on the season. Given a cold forecast Saturday, expect a low-scoring, defensive grind between the Gophers and Iowa.

What time does the Gophers-Hawkeyes game start?
