I!!! --- O!!! --- W!!! --- A!!! It happens with the Hawkeyes score a touchdown. The southeast corner begins with - I. Southwest follows with - O. Northeast adds - W. And northeast ends it with - A!!!!! Then it continues - sometimes until the next kickoff. Sometimes clear through the visiting team's possession. It's called atmosphere. It's called Kinnick... More

What a great stadium to go to and see your beloved Iowa Hawkeyes play a game. Nice big statue of Nile Kinnick out front, nice brick work and beautiful grounds. Better to park on a side street and walk so you can get some good food and buy some shirts. Tailgaiting here is top notch

great crowd, sufficient standing room and the final to an amazing season of the hawkeyes. we went there during an unusually snowy weekend and they did a good job cleaning off the field. the seats were still covered so keep that in mind should you ever go on a snowy day!

I may be a biased Hawkeyes fan, but you'd be hard pressed to find a better college football atmosphere than what you'll find at Kinnick. Food vendors set up outside the stadium, great crowd, tailgating galore, and still that feel of good ol' Midwestern hospitality! The one possible negative is that there isn't parking right near the stadium, but they... More

History was made with over 42,000 people attending a wrestling meet between the Iowa Hawkeyes and the Tennessee State Cowboys. There were fun activities prior to the match. Every seat has good viewing. The best selection of food is sold by the vendors in the south end zone area. The announcer was very good at explaining what was happening.

We were here visiting friends from U of Maryland & to watch the game. The stadium is awesome and a great place to watch the excitement. The Electricity of the fans was unbelievable. Everyone was so involved in the game and with good reason as the Hawks are undefeated. We were able to walk to the game and see all... More

We attended a game here today. The weather was a sunny comfortable October football game day. This place is a special and magical place to watch a game. The fans know the game and are willing to cheer. We'll be back! Go Hawks!

There are many gates here, it is easy to get to and from the stadium using many different avenues, walk ways and parking lots. Over 80 years old and is classic.

Kinnick is a great stadium with wonderful fans! There are a lot of fun tailgating lots surrounding the stadium. My only complaint would be that the seating is too tight.
