IOWA CITY, Iowa-- University of Iowa head football coach Kirk Ferentz will meet with media at 12:45 p.m. (CT) Tuesday to talk about Saturday's regular season opener against Northern Illinois.
The briefing with local, regional and national media will be held in the Hayden Fry Football Complex and will be available live from start to finish on Hawkeye All-Access, the multi-media portal inside hawkeyesports.com, the official worldwide website of the Iowa Hawkeyes.
Saturday's game will begin at 2:42 p.m. (CT) inside Kinnick Stadium. The game will be televised on the BTN with the former Hawkeye trio of Paul Burmeister, Chuck Long, and Danan Hughes calling the action.
Iowa holds an 8-0 advantage in the series with the Huskies, including an 18-17 victory in the 2012 season opener in Chicago's Soldier Field. The first six games in the series were played in Kinnick Stadium and the last two in Chicago.

Following the season-opening loss to the Hawkeyes, the Huskies won 12 straight games to earn a BCS berth into the Orange Bowl, where they fell 31-10 to Florida State. Rod Carey is in his first year as Northern Illinois' head coach.
