Pitt fans will have a nice opportunity to check out Pitt's next opponent when Iowa takes on their rivals in Iowa State on Saturday. How can you see it?

The Panthers take on Florida International on the road on Saturday at noon and of course you can see it on Fox Sports 1. What will Pitt's next opponent be doing on Saturday and how can you do a little scouting? Unlike last weekend when you pretty much had to travel to see Florida International play, you can tune in to ESPN to check out the Iowa Hawkeyes this week.

Iowa will play their third straight home game and look to start out the season 3-0 after taking out Northern Iowa and Ball State the last two weeks. They will play host to Iowa State at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday and all of the action will be on ESPN. Pitt's game should be over by then so you can watch former Panthers' defensive coordinator Paul Rhoads try and get Iowa State on the winning track as they take a 0-2 record into the game with the Hawkeyes. Iowa State did hang tight with a good Kansas State team, so this could be a very close contest.

Pittsburgh native Kirk Ferentz heads up the Iowa coaching staff and quarterback Jake Rudock leads the offense on Saturday. Add in the rivalry and this will be a fun game to watch. Check it out and get a look at Pitt's next opponent before the Panthers do.
