This is the second part of a two-part story of the Iowa Hawkeye football schedule.
Last week, I thought Iowa could be favored in its first six games.
That includes home games with the University of Northern Iowa (UNI), Ball State, Iowa State, and Indiana (homecoming) plus road trips to Pittsburgh and Purdue.
The second half of the season starts with a first-time trip to Maryland, at home with Northwestern, and road games at Minnesota and Illinois.
The Hawks finish at home with Wisconsin and Nebraska.
