I've been to a number of college stadiums, including Iowa multiple times. It's not in a bad state - it's fairly nice. However, I've just never enjoyed watching games there. My biggest complaint is seats are just too small. You basically end up sitting sideways.

I have had a chance to experience a few games there over the years and it is always a great experience. So much fun tailgating before the game and then watching the Iowa Hawkeyes! If you are a Hawkeye fan you must go to at least one game there in your life. I plan on taking our daughter in the... More

I've been going to football games in Kinnick for many years now. I only get back to Iowa City for a couple of games each fall but always look forward to it even if the team isn't doing that well. I don't think I totally appreciated Kinnick until I had a chance to visit other venues in the Big Ten.... More

Football Saturdays at Kinnick Stadium are awesome. It's a sea of black and gold with great participation by the fans in support of their Hawkeyes. I've had season tickets for over 35 years and just ordered for next fall. Most seats have an excellent view of the field and there are state of the art screens for replays. It honors... More

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
