Iowa’s offense was the laughingstock of college football in 2022. Although Kirk Ferentz, Iowa’s long tenured head football coach, didn’t fire his son, Brian Ferentz, as offensive coordinator, the Hawkeyes did get two key players from Michigan football via the transfer portal, Cade McNamara (QB) and Erick All (TE). Both All and McNamara were team captains for UM football in 2022 so it will be very interesting to watch how they perform in Iowa City.
Thus far, it looks like Iowa’s new offensive additions have largely been wasted. It boggles my mind that Brian Ferentz still has a job as the OC of a major college football team. I actually feel bad for Hawkeye fans. In their game against Penn State, Iowa had the same number of turnovers as first downs!
If you are a fan of defense, and don’t like to watch vertical passing or touchdowns, you can watch Iowa Hawkeyes football live on a host of different devices including Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Samsung Smart TV, and more.
My top pick for Hawkeyes fans is fuboTV. With a growing lineup of 4K programming, including FOX sports broadcasts, KGAN CBS 2 Cedar Rapids for watching the Chiefs, and Big Ten Network in the base package, fuboTV has a lot to offer Iowa sports fans. Plus, when games get really boring, you can check out other college football matchups with Multiview.
Hulu, YouTube TV, and DIRECTV STREAM are also good options for Hawkeye fans, and offer similar coverage to fuboTV, albeit with different packages and pricing.

How to watch Iowa football on Hulu + Live TV
I’ve enjoyed watching college football on Hulu. I like the interface and the service has all the channels you need to live stream the Hawkeyes and Big Ten Football. Big Ten Network is offered in the base package and the ESPN+ bundle gets NCAAF fans even more games.

How to watch Iowa football on Sling TV
Sling Orange or Blue, as stand alone services, offer value as budget picks, but they are missing key channels for Iowa football. For example, Sling TV users in Iowa can’t get FOX or ABC without an air antenna. Nevertheless, the availability of ESPN, FS1, and Big Ten Network offers some coverage.

How to watch Iowa football on Peacock
New for 2023, Hawkeye fans will be able to see a handful of Iowa football games on Peacock. Under the Big Ten’s new TV deal, Peacock will simulcast the Big Ten Saturday Night prime-time game on Saturday night with NBC. In addition, Peacock will be the exclusive home of 8 Big Ten football games in 2023, which brings the “streaming exclusive” model that has so frustrated MLB fans to college football. Buckle up because it’s going to be a wild ride.
Watching Iowa football FAQ
The Wolverines are not on Iowa’s schedule in 2023 unless both teams make it to the Big Ten Championship game. You have to wonder whether not having to play his former teammates factored into Cade McNamara’s decision to transfer to the Hawkeyes.
