Toledo vs Iowa State football: Game time, TV channel, radio, odds, and more


It’s homecoming for Iowa State, and the Cyclones will hope a huge crowd will be on hand to root them to their second victory of the season (1-4). This year’s homecoming game is a bit different from normal as they won’t be playing a Big 12 team. Instead, it’ll be one of the leaders in the MAC, Toledo (4-2).

On Mediacom, the game can be found in SD on channel 59.2, 57.2, 74.2, and 165; in HD on channel 798 (or channel 698 in the Moline and Dubuque markets).

For everyone else, the best way is to subscribe to the package for a month (about $10) and watch it on your computer. For those that want to watch it on TV, hook the computer up to the TV with an HDMI cable. Or, invest in a Google Chromecast that can wirelessly stream anything in a Google Chrome tab on your computer.

Another way of watching the game is through iOS and Android mobile devices, but that requires an additional purchase of the Iowa State app.

Remember, Iowa State will be playing Texas next week and that game is exclusive to as well. If you are going to be watching Cyclone games from home, paying the $10 is your best bet. Any other questions? has you covered. Or, ask me on Twitter.

When all else fails, grab some cash, some friends, and head to the nearest bar.
