Great place, energetic fans. I was there for media coverage and I will say that they have VERY tight sidelines. So if you are a member of the media, be ready to be walking on your tip toes.

There is no better football destination on a fall day in Iowa. The stadium and area around it becomes a massive black and gold party every home game Saturday. The Big Ten provides great football action, the seats are very close to the field, and the local fans are as into the game as any in the country.

Nile Kinnick Stadium for the University of Iowa is named in honor of the former Hawkeye halfback and 1939 Heisman Trophy winner. It is the only stadium in America currently named for a Heisman Trophy winner. It is a great place to visit for the history as well as the tradition of great football and fans. (Nile won the 1939...

Attended the Iowa/Nebraska football game. Getting in to and out of the stadium was very smooth. Figure out your parking strategy before you go. Traffic is very heavy leaving the stadium, so be prepared to wait. Cell service is nearly non-existent as well.

Beautiful stadium. You are close to the action with the small sidelines. Food service not so hot - literally - food was lukewarm - but we didn't go for the food. Would have been nice to have the snow and ice cleared off our seat beforehand so we didn't have to chip it off with our keys but hey, it... More

Unfortunately the home team took it on the chin, but the stadium got us in and got us out as efficiently as any large event that I have attended. Study the parking map before you go. The softball field is about a 15 minute walk along a concrete bike path and allows easy access to the mall after the game.... More

If you are a college football fan or not, Kinnick stadium is a fun place to go for a game. Great seating through-out the stadium. The walk to the stadium from the hotel is a couple miles. If you are early to the game, catch the Marching Hawkeyes practice in the rec center before they march to the field.

We were there for the Iowa v Iowa State game as a family divided. This is a great, old, cool traditional stadium. Know that if you have seats way up, you will be walking up that many stairs and it is high up. There also was not a great selection of food and they don't serve beer (which I know... More

It's great to see a University of Iowa football game here. It does get very crowded so come early. Bring layers of clothes as it can go from cold to hot to windy to rainy all during one football game.
